| WEDNESDAY, MARCH 18, 2009
Three: What’s in the workflow is what gets used. I recently read the McKinsey report on s ix ways to make Web 2.0 They were primarily speaking about Web 2.0 inside the enterprise so I will rename the topic enterprise 2.0 for clarity in my own mind. They “studied more than 50 early adopters to garner insights into successful efforts to use Web 2.0 as a way of unlocking participation…surveyed, independently, a range of executives on Web 2.0 adoption.”

I decided the three main sections are one: content monitoring, two: content collecting, assembling, and creation, and three: content publishing and archiving. Step two then reaches into both step one and step three for new content.

- [Workflow] DMS and Collaboration Suite: Friends not Foes
Document management is all about workflow, control, and risk mitigation. What's the relationship between a document management system (DMS) and an enterprise collaboration suite like Socialtext ? The other week, I was meeting with a project team at a large retail bank who is bringing Socialtext into their organization. It was a cross-functional team, representing different parts of the IT organization.

I can use macros and VBA (Visual Basic for Applications - built into Office and therefore doesn't require specialist developer tools) to automate as much of the data entry as possible, including workflow-driven forms to manage business processes and automatically generate client letters pre-populated with data. The reaction to a previous post - Rethinking Office - has been interesting.
TONY KARRER [Workflow] Challenges 2008
| TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2008
I see this happen on projects such as: Metrics-driven performance support tools Performance support tools and workflow Integrated psychometric models Matching Unfortunately, I randomly find these projects. At the end of 2006, I spent some time thinking about 2007 and wrote a post challenges and predictions for 2007. This was a great exercise and the fact that I had not considered my big challenges for 2008 made it harder to do my Conference Planning for ASTD TechKnowledge 2008.

LINKED INTELLIGENCE [Workflow] Lifehacker Confessions: The Tips and Tricks I'm Not Using
| FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2008
Reading Lifehacker can inspire you to reboot your computer habits, your workflow, your workspace, and even your home life. Believe me, I should know. About a year ago, I was a messy-desked, easily-distracted reporter who relished his lunch-break reading of Lifehacker's RSS feed. I asked to write a few posts, lucked into a real gig, and can now tell the story of becoming a task-minded guru who gets things done with the right software. That's not a true story, though.
LINKED INTELLIGENCE [Workflow] Clean Your Workspace--and Keep it That Way
| THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2008
Assuming your normal workflow and gadget set-up is under control, let's tackle the rest. Whether your workspace is miles from your home or right there amongst your books and Battlestar Galactica figurines, it probably has something in common with at least a few other Lifehackers' (and mine)—the ability to attract clutter, make important documents and objects hard to find, and, over time, become time an actual impediment to getting things done.

WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] Things Keeps Tasks Under Control
| MONDAY, JULY 27, 2009
If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my quest to organize my workflow, it is that everyone’s brain works differently. There are almost as many answers to the question “what task management tool do you like” as there are people, and we’ve reviewed a host of those solutions here at WebWorkerDaily. I’ve struggled for years to try to find the right solution for me. I’ve used a Franklin Planner , a Palm T/X , Microsoft Outlook (s msft), Remember The Milk , and a few other options.
WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] Time to Think Twice About Free
| MONDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2008
Choosing to use an online service for part of your business workflow carries with it opportunity costs and risk costs. As we covered last week, free services I Want Sandy and Stikkit are closing shortly, joining a growing list of Web 2.0 free-to-consumer startups that have shuttered their sites. It’s not just the little guys that are going out of business, either: Google Lively is set to become the latest failed experiment from the search behemoth later this year.

| SUNDAY, APRIL 6, 2008
If I use a wiki within a business process where people are directed by role, workflow and functional needs of the procedure - thats not all that emergent at all - in fact, its not really a valid Enterprise 2.0 blogs, wikis, tag and social bookmarks, etc) even in situations where culture is "unhealthy" - and when participation is more or less "directed" by role, workflow, and functional duties.

WWW.MFAUSCETTE.COM [Workflow] Michael Fauscette: Socializing Software
| SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2010
Traditional enterprise software was built on the concept of managing through rigid business processes and controlled workflow. Process, file-centricity, workflow driven systems are too rigid and are not focused on the activities that a networked business in the information era needs to carry out business in a flexible and ad hoc global hyper-connected ecosystem.

Addressing Existing Enterprise Workflows Here’s how I define Social Software 2.0: The integration of collaboration, increased findability, social networking and crowdsourcing into core enterprise activities requiring defined workflows, specific user sign-offs, results measurement and role-based access. The workflow aspect of this occurs when the crowdsourced rating falls below some threshold, triggering a required review by the procurement manager.

WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] Take the Lead in Your Remote Work Relationships
| TUESDAY, JUNE 29, 2010
The discussion of time lead me to consider workflow, and how we’d manage that in a remote, yet close working situation. At the beginning of a new project, it’s easy for the freelance remote worker to leave the decision-making about the project to the client. Often, I find myself thinking, “Well, they know what they want; I’ll let them explain it..
WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] The Apple Tablet: What It Needs to Be Useful for Web Working
| THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 2010
These are the things I’ll need to truly incorporate an Apple tablet into my workflow in a meaningful and permanent way. I’m excited about the much-hyped Apple tablet, which is expected to be unveiled next week. I would be excited if Apple was releasing a new device that only provided me with a painful electric shock every hour on the hour, frankly.
WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] 4 Web Tools You May Have Missed
| TUESDAY, JANUARY 12, 2010
I encounter so many web apps over the course of any given day that some tend to get lost in the mix, especially the oddball little applications that do something that isn’t in my standard workflow. That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate how useful and creative those apps are, just that I end up setting them aside to come back to later.
WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] Better Working Tip: Reclaim the Morning
| THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2009
A while ago, I set out to try singletasking in an attempt to clear the static from my current workflow and restore a little sanity to what had become a frantic and scattered way of getting things done. I can’t say that I’ve fully adopted the singletasking approach, since I find that my attention span just isn’t capable of focusing on one task at a time, but I did learn some simplification habits that have helped me to work better.
WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] Low-tech Love: The Sketchbook
| THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2009
Even if design has nothing to do with your project, you can use the space to rough out workflows and processes, draw mind maps and illuminate key project concepts in a way that verbal communication simply doesn’t allow for. Because of its recent return to my working methodology, I want to take a moment to single out a very low-tech web working tool for praise. I’m talking about the sketchbook, that handy little tome in which we can capture and generate some of our best ideas.
WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] Zen: Does This Project Management Tool Live Up to its Name?
| THURSDAY, JULY 23, 2009
Finally, the “Process pane allows you to fully customize the stages involved in your project workflow. I’ve seen my fair share of online project management apps during my time here at WebWorkerDaily. Generally speaking, they all claim to reduce the stress produced by the project management process, but Zen is a good candidate for the most bravely named among these apps. It definitely raised my expectations, at any rate.

With Taskbar Shuffle, you can just drag and drop these items in an order that complements your workflow. Written by Celine Roque. The first thing I look at when looking at a new application is the feature list. Many of those feature lists tend to be really long, and most of the time I find myself using an app without taking advantage of its lesser-known features. A program’s usefulness isn’t necessarily proportional to the size of its feature list.

WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] My Web Working Resolution: Be More Green
| TUESDAY, JANUARY 6, 2009
My tiny apartment is literally strewn about with knick-knacks and gizmos I thought would increase my productivity or benefit my workflow in some way.

A lot were work related, and one in particular applies primarily to web work. That resoultion? To be more green in my work practices.
WEB WORKER DAILY [Workflow] Socialcast Brings Social Messaging to the Enterprise
| MONDAY, DECEMBER 8, 2008
Reducing the barrier to entry is key for maximum participation and since people can jump in without major changes to their existing workflow they are more likely to make a contribution.

| THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2008
Plus, dependability and multi-monitor support when in OS integration mode are absolutely crucial in a multi-OS workflow, so it's hard to side with Parallels until a later build delivers more stability and bug fixes. Any freelancer who does computer-related work, whether on or offline, probably understands the value of being able to work in multiple operating systems.

After the acquisition was completed, Microsoft has kept quiet on exactly how it would adapt Parlano's technology and deliver it as part of Office Communications Server (OCS).

They let a company take good ideas— improved business processes, sets of workflows, plans about who should get to make which decisions, etc.— A researcher can easily fall into the trap of losing the ability to look at his own work critically. He spends a lot of time looking at data and trying to figure out what’s going on, and eventually comes up a story that explains what he’s seeing. When he’s feeling pedantic (which is often) he calls this story a theory.
