Jordan-Webb - All Rights Reserved 1991-2004 -v7 - Page 2 The Value of Collaboration! n There is more wisdom in crowds than in individuals –Decision-making in modern organizations depends on participation and consensus of diverse stakeholder groups –These groups need better information to make quality decisions in more compressed time frames –Collaborative teams have the expertise, experience, information, insight, inspiration and wisdom needed to resolve issues of change, complexity and competition –As more decisions are delegated to teams, it’s critical to provide people with tools and techniques that enable them to: do collaborative work at convenient times and places produce results against the march of time
Jordan-Webb - All Rights Reserved 1991-2004 -v7 - Page 3 Collaborative Environments n For decisions we collaborate in Meetings –Face to face –Teleconferences –Video conferences –Web conferences n A meeting is the very basic business process –Legacy (needs new concepts) A process we neglected when we reengineered everything else –Perception (needs rehabilitating) A place where minutes are taken and hours are wasted –Potential A place where distributed teams can do real collaborative work Collaborative work is more than broadcasting presentations
Jordan-Webb - All Rights Reserved 1991-2004 -v7 - Page 4 Web Meetings are not all created equally! n Many organizations do Web Conferencing –Webex, LiveMeeting, Raindance, Sharepoint, NetMeeting… n Increasing numbers also do Web Collaboration –WebIQ, Facilitate.com, GroupSystems, MeetingWorks… n Conferencing versus Collaboration? –Group A’s approach is to broadcast and observe –Group B’s approach is to engage and facilitate WWW Group A Web Conferencing WWW Group B Web Collaboration
Jordan-Webb - All Rights Reserved 1991-2004 -v7 - Page 5 WWW Group B Web Collaboration WWW Group A Web Conferencing Conferencing versus Collaboration? n Similar at first glance: –Both use the world-wide-web as a virtual meeting room n But different in implementation: –Web Collaboration Engaging/Facilitating activities and processes to resolve common goals –Interactive participation, discussion, divergence, convergence –Activities: brainstorming, prioritizing, categorizing, evaluating –Processes: Problem Solving, Strategy Planning, Risk Assessing –Web Conferencing Broadcasting/Observing presentations, Sharing screens & documents –Passive participation, broadcasting, listening, limited interaction –Watching: Product Demonstration, Training Presentation –Coordinating: Status Reporting, Application Testing

Jordan-Webb - All Rights Reserved 1991-2004 -v7 - Page 7 Web Collaboration Benefit # 1 n Reducing time and distance as constraints to work –We say we want project & initiatives completed better faster & cheaper –Yet we do most of our planning and decision-making in the yellow area –Some (but not all) collaborative work needs to be in the yellow area, but work in the yellow area costs more money and takes more time –If we want to exploit the potential of working collaboratively in distributed organizations we must learn to work in the blue & green areas Different Time, Same Place (Shift Work) Different Time, Same Place (Shift Work) Same Time, Same Place (Face to Face) Same Time, Any Place (Synchronous) Any Time, Any Place (Asynchronous) Collaborative Work Modes (Johansen’s Four Square Model)
Jordan-Webb - All Rights Reserved 1991-2004 -v7 - Page 8 n Improving the quality and timeliness of collaborative decision making, planning, knowledge capture, etc. –improving deliverable work product quality –getting a broader base of support for decisions –reaching out to a wider audience for participation –allowing distributed participants to work at more convenient times Web Collaboration Benefit # 2 Chicago, Illinois 3:00pmWarsaw, Poland 10:00pm Phoenix, Arizona 2:00pm Adelaide, Australia 6:00am Same Time, Any Place (Synchronous) Chicago, Illinois Mo-Tu-WeWarsaw, Poland Su-Mo-Tu Phoenix, Arizona Mo-Tu-We Adelaide, Australia Tu-We-Th Any Time, Any Place (Asynchronous) X

Jordan-Webb - All Rights Reserved 1991-2004 -v7 - Page 10 Web Collaboration n We can now re-frame collaborative work in terms of how to maximize the participation of stakeholders in different times and places n Collaborative work can be organized in segments of minutes, hours and days over time when participants are available, as opposed to in full day segments when everyone is available to be in the same time and place n Conventional strategies for planning meetings do not take advantage of many of the efficiencies that are common to the 21st century workplace

Jordan-Webb - All Rights Reserved 1991-2004 -v7 - Page 13 Web Collaboration n Web Collaboration is a “disruptive technology”, bringing about changes that will cause discomfort in some folks n So far we’ve managed to survive and transition through many technological disruptions, including: –the wheel –the printing press –the railroad –the telegraph –the telephone –the automobile –the airplane –the mainframe computer –the personal computer –the internet

Question: What’s the “right” application for WebIQ? Programs & Projects Application - Very Simple to Complex The WebIQ environment can provide valuable support for: - single event activities (conference calls, brainstorming, prioritizing, allocating) - common repeatable processes (problem solving, project status meetings, peer assists) - high-level processes & projects (strategy planning, process improvement, focus groups) Software Code Inspection Answer: That depends!

Jordan-Webb - All Rights Reserved 1991-2004 -v7 - Page 20 Remember the Differences! n WebIQ should not be confused in name or in function with WebEx, or other Web Conferencing products such as LiveMeeting, Raindance, Sharepoint, NetMeeting, etc. n Many web meeting products talk about the concept of “Web Collaboration”, but only a few can deliver it n WebIQ is a specialized collaborative environment that delivers results in distributed processes for decision- making, strategy planning, knowledge capture, problem solving, etc. n Challenge: Will you be leading or following your competitors in collaborating on the Web?
