It’s a common word to say organization charts are never up to date. I’ve always thought that the only way to know who’s doing what in an organization is to letj people manage their own personal space. In fact those charts (lately udpated) onl show your function bunt never your expertises or what you really do…or those are the questions who are asking people who make a search on a intranet.
Cogmap is a service that allows employees to build their company’s chart online. Datas being accessible for everybody it’s also a good opportunity to identify qualified contacts in a company.
I’m looking forward to know how this service will develop et how many people will put datas in the base. We may also think that companies will take the opportunity of putting themselves their chart online instead of letting their employees do that by themselves.
I’m also waiting for the first case of “non official job” unveiled by a thoughtful by zealous employee.
What do you thing about that ? Will this kind of service meet success ? Risk or opportunity for companies ? And for employees who will play the game ?
