Social software – balance ease of use with compliance

Interesting conversation at Go Big Always which starts off looking at how the simplicity of Social Software “cuts through the crap” of silos, file servers etc. that build up within an organisation and goes on to discuss the problem of balancing simplicity with legal/HR requirements.

The answer, of course, is that this is not about the software but instead about behaviours. If the projects are led by business instead of IT (eg “I work this way and by doing so closed these deals which brought this much revenue into the organisation and wouldn’t be able to without these tools”) then the legal/HR team is much more likely to “find a way” than if it is led by IT out of general interest in making the organisation more productive.
