Do your employees have trust within their information, do they communicate to deliver successful collaboration and business value?
Have you equipped your organisation for 'Collaborative' failure.
Collaboration within any organisation is hard. Humans have a need to feel valued, but, collaboration can be seen as a dilution of this. This perception can be brought about by fear and confusion, leading to them feeling their contribution is being lost in the abyss.
Fear of the abyss has lead to isolated business process with difficult change management and poor communication.
IT, a road block to collaboration.
Information Technology has created a road block. It's done this with the use of systems that overwrite data or are hard to use. These IT systems have increased employees feeling of being in the abyss with decreased value and increased business tensions.
Overwritten data is a simple things that happens billions of times across organisations around the world each and every day. But, the overwriting of data contributes to employees loss of value within business processes. This leads to loss of trust and loss of business intelligence within your organisation. This contributes to a breakdown in communications and the feeling of isolation.
Developing inclusion to deliver collaboration and business value.
Inclusion will remove isolated tasks within business processes; employees will feel happier to contribute to something they are connected to. This has great benefit to your organisation, it will have more and better information to make decisions on.
Developing inclusion improves data quality and business process outcomes. Demonstrating how the employee's contribution leads to better business decisions and better outcomes for them has a continuous self-reinforcing result. A virtuous cycle of improvement.
Products like GARNET8 Collaboration Clouds (G8CC) develop this inclusion by creating a simple intuitive interface. This enables people and things within business processes to access, collaborate on and engage with other.
However, this simplicity is only the first step; G8CC was designed to never overwrite information. Instead it creates a audit-able and searchable trial of data within a unique data object. This data trail starts with information about the person who created it along with when it was created and then continues on to record all the changes that are applied and by whom.
This data trail builds trust around the information and trust allows people collaborate freely; it gives the information a more personal feel, allowing participants to feel they've contributed to business decisions. Lastly, you can analyse the data trail in order to continuously improve the business process, a clear bonus that arises from the inclusiveness that has been created.
Getting started delivering inclusive collaboration.
We recommend this to be a user driven process. With G8CC's ability to deliver unique data-driven solutions easily, you can focus on delivering the greatest value to staff.
Firstly, map out business processes, when doing so make sure you engage front line employees. If you don't have their buy-in your initiative may fail. Within this process you will need to understand the flow of data, the structure of the data and what employees have to achieve.
When consulting front-line employees be sure to get a view of the information they have, but also the information they don't have. Allowing them access to the information they feel they need but currently don't have will achieve a greater buy-in. This will also improve the outcomes of business processes, as front-line employees can make faster and better decisions.
Once complete, you can take the information created with the engagement of front-line employees and put this into a flow chart or a visual representation. This will enable you demonstrate inclusion within business processes. This information will be the basis for your next steps, the development of a decision making process that will be beneficial to key stakeholders. This will allow your initiative to move forward.
Once you have the buy in from all participants you can move to deploying and testing your collaboration initiative. Doing so in G8CC is simple, as this is what it was designed for.
