Every Friday, we prepare for you a short digest with news covering subjects related to employee engagement, collaboration, organizational culture, knowledge sharing, leadership and the future of work.

Follow us on Twitter for the latest news.

Here’s this week’s brief:

Creating work-learning environments is…

…one of the ways Don Tapscott thinks talent management should change. “Work will look more like a jazz ensemble where hierarchy is replaced by creativity, sense-and-respond, peer-to-peer, collaboration, empowerment and improvisation.”. Changing words like “manage” with “collaborate” and “retain” with “evolve lasting relationships” are part of the advices he offers to organizations in his “Five ways Talent Management must Change” article published in World Economic Forum.

If when you envision your organization you…

…think of a hierarchy, Todd Webb thinks you are missing nearly everything important about how your organization works. In his article, he talks about networks, motivations, sharing a purpose and objectives, feedback and basically about what a thriving organization is all about. Read his “A Leader’s Garden” post in medium to learn more about his point of view.

Did you ever consider including end users…

…in UC (Unified Communications) and collaboration technology rollouts? Gina Narcisi thinks you should if IT wants to stop being disappointed with adoption rates. If users believe that a new tool won’t help their productivity, it’s only natural they won’t use them. Learn about how business leaders, IT teams and users can change with this process from her “Collaboration technology adoption suffers when users aren’t consulted” article for Search Unified Communications.

Collaboration isn’t easy…

…and companies still rewarding individual performance don’t help a lot with changing that. Add employees that intentionally hide information from their colleagues and that’s how you get the low adoption rates for enterprise collaboration tools. At the same time, the need for UCC (Unified Communications and Collaboration) is a fact as the digital workplace era demands it. Read in detail about the several reasons Melanie Turek describes as the cause of this phenomenon in her “Looking to Drive Collaboration? Look Beyond the Tech” article in NoJiter.

Supporting advanced user accounts creation…

…and management, and providing dead-easy ways of authenticating, is a fundamental aspect of Quandora, so this is what we worked on for our latest releases. At our customers’ request, we know support user groups, so as an administrator, you can now assign roles in Knowledge Bases in a centralized way. The bulk creating users feature will come in handy if you just started using Quandora or if you’re about to add a new team to the system. Also, if you’re using a SAML2-compliant identity manager product (like Okta,SecureAuthOneLogin…), now you can enable your users to log in to Quandora using their corporate account. Read in detail about the new features as well as about our future plans in our “[Product Update] User groups, bulk create users, and SAML2 support” blog post.

Happy Knowledge Sharing!

Looking for a great way to ask questions and build knowledge with your co-workers? Quandora enables simple, efficient knowledge sharing with your team, way more fun than a mailing list or a forum. Try Quandora
