    I've found that Jacob Morgan always stays on the leading edge of collaborative organisational models and practice, and on new methods of working e.g. the "future of work". I find his writing practical and his experience relevant to larger enterprises.

    THE MAIN IDEA Organizations that don’t collaborate don’t get the most out of their resources - physical, human or intellectual. In an increasingly connected world, organizations need to connect. This book shows you how organizations can connect and collaborate more effectively by providing a nuts and bolts ‘how-to’ guide on the use of various emergent social and collaborative tools (including social media platforms like Facebook and Google+ as well as collaborative tools like Yammer, Social Cast, THE MAIN IDEA Organizations that don’t collaborate don’t get the most out of their resources - physical, human or intellectual. In an increasingly connected world, organizations need to connect. This book shows you how organizations can connect and collaborate more effectively by providing a nuts and bolts ‘how-to’ guide on the use of various emergent social and collaborative tools (including social media platforms like Facebook and Google+ as well as collaborative tools like Yammer, Social Cast, SalesForce etc). INTERESTING TIDBIT The author was only 28 years old when the book came out (in 2012). WHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW You need a plan. Social and collaborative technologies are the new ‘shiny’ thing on the street for organizations. While they definitely can help organizations be more effective – their non-discriminate use can lead to trouble through push back by staff (how do these things help me – they just seem like more work?) and external stakeholders (nobodies getting back to my tweets or Facebook posts?). You need to figure out what social and collaborative technologies work for your organization and implement them – but according to a plan! THE GENERAL OVERVIEW This is a fun book. One of its real strengths is the multitude of real life examples that the author uses in explaining how his ideas can be operationalized. The other real strength is the really concrete way in which the ideas are set out so that anyone – no matter what the size of their organization – can begin to implement social and collaborative technologies in their workplace. On a personal note, spread over a range of studios in a number of different countries as we are as an organization, we’ve found this book really useful in our own practice. We have been using these technologies for a long time ourselves but found lots of interesting insights in the book which have helped modify some of the ways in which we were using these technologies in our own work. We’ve definitely recommended the book to others – both clients of ours and those working in organizations like ours. It’s a great book, useful and really read-able. It’s well worth a read – no matter the size of your organization. At the very least, it’s interesting to see how technology is changing the way organizations work.

    Good, easy to read book; a manual on how to move your organisation to the networked (Web 2.0) society. In our private life we live in the networked world. Some businesses are still lagging behind. Jacob explained: "The purpose of this book is to act as a guide for executives, decision makers, and those involved with collaborative initiatives at their organizations." Therefore, if you are one of them (people that collaborate with coworkers), this is a book for you.
