A travel guide for your social collaboration road trip
Geert Nijs has almost finished writing his book “A travel guide for your social collaboration road trip”, which is an ingenious alternative to the traditional user guide or training manual.
Recorded in person at a DWG Member Meeting in Amsterdam, Paul Miller talks to Geert and Syngenta’s Nicki Allitt about this new approach and the power of storytelling. The trio discuss bringing stories to life; digital conversations; how actions speak louder than words; and why more organizations aren’t telling their stories.
Who is Paul Miller?
Paul Miller is CEO and Founder of the Digital Workplace Group. His latest book, ‘The Digital Renaissance of Work: Delivering digital workplaces fit for the future’ (co-authored with Elizabeth Marsh), was shortlisted for the CMI Management Book of the Year 2016 Award.

Creating unified employee experiences at BNY Mellon
With a background in online collaboration, communicative technologies and working out loud (WoL), Mike Fraietta was tasked with running BNY Mellon’s new intranet programme and encouraging its 50k+ employees to better connect to their tasks, to each other and to content. He talks to Paul Miller about the unusual approach to user migration; the challenges and triumphs of the programme; and the highs and lows of WoL.
Accelerating adoption in your digital workplace
Adoption is critical to digital workplace initiatives if they are to thrive and deliver on their objectives. The discussion centres around DWG’s recent report “Digital workplace adoption strategies: Proven approaches to bring users on board” and includes the key findings from the report as well as real-world examples from practitioners at Scottish Government and PANDORA.
How digital is your nation?
Our guests in this (slightly unusual) episode of Digital Workplace Impact, are both involved in innovative, global initiatives that challenge the current way of thinking. These two young, ambitious leaders offer their perspective on digital government – outlining the current situation, how governments will need to evolve and asking whether the nation state will even exist in 100 years. And, of course, we ask what all this will mean for the digital worlds of work. We also take a glimpse inside their respective organizations and learn more about the difference these inspiring initiatives are making.
