It saddens me to too often see enterprise application strategies with a glaring omission...a Wiki.
A wiki is an important technology cog in any effective collaboration stack. It belongs alongside functionality like instant messaging, discussion threads, and a social platform.

A Wiki capability is a place where unstructured information can be collaboratively developed, shared and discovered. The ongoing fallacy that this is satisfied by sharepoint, or even worse that isn't a need, is disappointing. Absolutely sharepoint has a place for centralised web content, repositories and lists... however I challenge anyone in the world to give me a working example of sharepoint being used to support emergent, collaborative online content.

"Eight in ten CEOs expect their environment to grow significantly more complex, and fewer than half believe they know how to deal with it successfully," says a recent IBM study of complexity in business. MIT Sloan School of management reports that agile organizations generate 30% higher earnings per share.

#digitaltransformation The crazy thing about intel's vision is that its all current easily available technology...the only reason we aren't behaving like this is LEGACY...our current systems, structure, culture, practices and leadership get in the way. Creating new ideas, platforms, channels isn't the problem...its about our capability to shape legacy to foster adoption

"World's largest companies are now making advanced use of social tools in the way that they work"
... the tide is finally turning and big business is finally starting to understand social business. 
Summary:Case studies demonstrate that some of the world's largest companies are now making advanced use of social tools in the way that they work. Is Europe leading the way?

I'm always intrigued by the resistance of the human brain to accept complexity...to accept uncertainty...to accept unpredictability. Complexity is really quite beautiful and absolutely a fun place to be.

This is the (long overdue) translation of my opening keynote at the Italian Agile Day. I just presented it for IASA Ireland (International Association Software Architects). The a3thinker.com iphone/ipad app I mentioned (on Lean problem solving, 5 Whys, etc) went on sale on the Apple store on Mar 18. The A3 Thinker's Action Deck (physical cards) is going to be on sale shortly...and it is just awesome ;-)
