Org Charts At The Edges: More Use Cases For Organimi

Posted by Eric Apps

Jun 11, 2014 7:18:00 AM

Today's blog focuses on the topic of use cases and acceptable usage of Organimi.  

Use cases are widely used in the software industry and by IT organizations internally at organizations to describe the way people (typically) interact with technology (typically devices and software) to achieve business and personal goals. Core use cases reflect common repeated patterns; use cases "at the edges" explore the boundaries and exceptions that bend and twist and extend the core capabilities of the system. Acceptable use describes the set of rules applicable to access and use of a system, website or service.

Our basic message is "go nuts", use Organimi everywhere you feel it is appropriate, and bend and break it everywhere you can so we can see how much further we can push the product to help achieve that vision of connecting people at work in meaningful and useful ways.

This week's blog focuses on the organizational structure and the organizational charts of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA).

Getting A Glance At Diversity 

Last week Google outed itself for having a workforce that skewed heavily to white, male and geeky.  

Noting that it's staff was 70% male and over 60% white Google indicated that "we're not where we want to be when it comes to diversity,"

Org Charts, Organizing and Unions: May Day, May Day

It's hard to believe, in my part of the northern hemisphere anyway, that we're halfway between the vernal equinox (aka the start of the season formerly known as spring) and the summer solstice.  

2014 may well be remembered as "the spring that never came".   I've become so frustrated, I recently took in a night of axe throwing to relieve the tension and explore my Viking we-don't-mind-the-cold-lets-get-out-there-and-explore roots.

Org Charts, Organizational Transparency and Social Sharing

Posted by Eric Apps

We're on our way to 10,000 organizations on-boarded to Organimi this year, so thanks to everybody for signing on.

Today's blog is about org charts, organizational transparency and our new social sharing features for Organimi.

You can try these out for your own organization - or any other organization you want to, as we'll discuss below.

The Times They Are A Changin' 

I'm a fan of Henry Blodget.  I've never met him, but followed his tech research through the go-go 90s tech boom.  For me, Henry and Mary Meeker were the gold standard - masters of the trifecta of tech trends, capital markets and the media.  Even after Eliot Spitzer had him railroaded out of the securities industry,  I followed Henry through his time at Silicon Alley, Seeking Alpha and, most recently, as the head of Business Insider.  

So perhaps it is no surprise that when I was thinking about organizational transparency and social sharing, the lens went to Business Insider, Henry's latest initiative at the intersection of tech, money and media.

We grabbed the masthead and, using Organimi, have faithfully reproduced the org chart for Henry's team at Business Insider (circa November, 2010 according to the masthead anyway) here.

 

We also shared it so you can search and find it on Twitter and on Pinterest .  You get the picture.

Now the Business Insiders can clean it up, add more team photos and make changes....for free.  What a fantastic deal!

This is all because of a new feature in this Organimi release that lets you easily publish and share snapshots of your org charts across any social channels you want to, by email to anyone you want to, or by dynamic links to your Organimi site using the code snips we generate:

It is amazing how much information is out there, about so many organizations, and what an unstructured mess it all is!!!! Some organizing is required.  That's what we are doing at Organimi.

We don't want to sound like neat freaks but we're hoping to clean it up a bit.

As you see from above, the times they are a changing---- and the whole notion of organizational structure, boundaries and privacy will be changing with them.
