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.
