Is e-mail and document sharing not good enough?

economy_down_000005762377f211In the current economic state of the world it is not easy to get organizations to experiment with innovative tools to support knowledge work. Very rightfully, they may ask: “So, why are our current tools – e-mail and file sharing on a network drive – not good enough?”. The challenge lies in explaining how innovative technologies can make them work better, quicker, more efficient and with more fun. In a nice interview by Stowe Boyd with Jeff Walker and Jay Simons of Atlassian they talk about the State Of Enterprise 2.0. I especially like their conclusion that we should aim for small, kaizen-style improvements and learning from the community, and not try jumping into a mass transformation.
