The word “Enterprise 2.0” has been bouncing around in my brain lately and making a big thud every time it hits the side of my skull.
I have been doing a lot of blogging lately about all of my smart ass answers to some of the issues and ideas around Enterprise 2.0 (aka Enterprise Social Computing).
So, here are my questions that I don’t have answers to, but I am pretty confident that some of you have good answers for me.
* Is there any conversation about marketing that is relevant to Enterprise 2.0?
* If an IT administrator falls in the woods, but nobody is around, did the IT administrator still fall?
* If an old enterprise vendor starts calling themselves Enterprise 2.0, but haven’t changed their software in any significant way, are they still then Enterprise 2.0?
* Does Andrew McAfee, Sloan Management or Harvard Business School own a copyright/TM on the term Enterprise 2.0?
* Is finding a better way to do old things something new in itself?
* Who gets fired? (Somebody always gets fired, even if that means a “lateral move”)
* Is it possible to go halfway towards Enterprise 2.0? Would employees understand if their employer told them that Governance was still King?
* Is it possible that Innovation isn’t good enough? How do you go beyond that?
To be honest, I have my own opinions about all these questions, and I am a little disappointed that I don’t have a better set of sarcastic questions to throw in.
