Sorry, this blog is very late compared to my french one and I’ll make everything possible to have it updated more frequently. I have a scheduled note dealing with indicators in enterprise 2.0 but it was supposed to be published after my series on “what’s an enterprise in 2007” and I can’t wait to introduce this subject since I read this very interesting post. It deals with participation in communities but I’d like to tell you a few words about one of its assumptions :
â€œGiven limited time and resources, where do you spend your time to increase participation?â€
Ok time is actually limited but can we find a way to “unlimit” it a little. According to me time is limited but in the whole working time, time allowed for participation is not only limited, it’s often equal to zero.
The time I give to participation lowers my productivity that’s evaluated locally by my manager. But this time, once converted in money (that’s the real point) may create 10 or 100 times its value in another part of the organization : little local loss and big global earn. But since my manager is in charge of local indicators he has not interest in global, and letting me participate is a logical nonsense for him (despite he knows it’s goog for the organization)
At the community era, do you think we can deal with post-Taylor indicators anymore ?
Does the fact people are evaluatedÂ locally since creation of value is global (with the assumption that in any enterprise value making is the main and only goal) seems to be a nonsense for you ?
