How to Implement Workplace by Facebook

Posted by Bill Cushard on Mar 17, 2017 8:50:41 AM

Worldwide spending on enterprise software was $314 billion in 2015 and expected to rise. This amount does not include the money and resources spent on professional services, migrations, integration work, training, and support. Organizations are spending big money on software. The problem is that nearly half of all software projects fail. Forrester Research has found that 49% of CRM projects fail, and according to CSO Insights, less than 40% have full scale end-user adoption.

To Kill Or Not to Kill Email Is Not That Interesting

Posted by Bill Cushard on Mar 16, 2017 9:57:16 AM

As has been said by futurists and Silicon Valley hipsters, "Email is where good ideas go to die." But so far, email is still here (so are plenty of good ideas, by the way), and it seems to be as strong as ever. Arguments about whether email is good or bad or whether it should be eliminated or remain forever can been seen carried out in the press and on blogs with a simple Google search. And as the existential debate about email rages on, a rare clear voice emerged last fall at WebSummit 2016. Sean Ryan, VP of Workplace by Facebook strolled on past the debate by saying the argument is not that interesting. "Email is going to die anyway. Anyone with teenagers knows this. They don't use email."

Can Workplace by Facebook Help You Scale Employee Engagement?

Posted by Bill Cushard on Nov 3, 2016 10:26:37 AM

Employee engagement requires a lot of work, especially for distributed organizations. There is almost nothing better for employee engagement than high-frequency face time between management and employees having open conversations around the mission of the company and each person’s contribution to it. For most organizations, that requires lots of travel, and no matter how much an executive team travels, there are still the other 360 days of the year when there is no executive visiting an office.

Using Workplace by Facebook to plan a technology conference

Posted by Bill Cushard on Oct 26, 2016 1:23:21 PM

Fall is tech conference season in Silicon Valley, and the biggest conference for ServiceRocket is the Atlassian Summit, which occurred the week of October 10 in San Jose, CA. We have participated in Summit since the very first one almost ten years ago. This year, as participation grew, we wanted to improve how we planned, organized, executed, and recapped our participation. We also wanted to maximizing participation in the conference, even with employees who could not attend in person. We used the Events feature in Workplace by Facebook to engage the team participating in the conference and employees around the world who could not attend.

Posted by Bill Cushard on Oct 10, 2016 10:21:50 AM

We started using Workplace by Facebook in early July 2016. It has been four months, so it seems like a good time to reflect on early results of our implementation and briefly discuss why we chose to implement Workplace by Facebook. And when you consider that ServiceRocket helps organizations adopt software tools like the Atlassian Suite, Puppet, Docker, NGINX and SauceLabs (to name a few) with training, implementation, and support services, it is also interesting to test our methodology on ourselves.
