No two digital workplaces are exactly the same, just as no two businesses are exactly the same. 

But in the last few years, some common denominators separate those who succeed from those who stand awash in a sea of unused software. 

Join us today for an hour long Tweet Jam as we discuss what separates the digital workplace success stories from the not-so-successful stories. 

The Tweet Jam will take place at 10 am PT/ 1 pm ET / 1800 GMT. We invite the broader CMSWire community to join in using the #socbizchat hashtag, by logging into Twubs or the chatroom of your choice or through CoverIt Live, found below.

The Questions

Tweet Jams rarely travel a linear path, but the questions below will guide our discussion:

  1. A common digital workplace misconception is that it's just about the technology. What other considerations come into play? 
  2. Does any one person or department hold ultimate responsibility for the success or failure of a digital workplace? If so, who? 
  3. How can larger organizations create company-wide digital workplace strategies while meeting the needs of individual units? 
  4. What steps can you take to prevent a digital workplace from replicating organizational silos? 
  5. What should an effective digital workplace governance strategy include? 
  6. How frequently should organizations reassess employee needs & the tools to support those needs? Who should own that process? 
  7. What signs point to the success or failure of a digital workplace strategy?

  • Introduce yourself with your first #socbizchat tweet. Include your name, job title and organization you work for 
  • Answer question one with A1, question two with A2, etc. — and always include the #socbizchat hashtag. For example, "@bigbird A2 Without company wide buy-in, any digital workplace effort will fail. Having said that, you need buy-in and support from top execs #socbizchat"
