“A successful Enterprise Social Network implementation is less about technology and more about the cultural and process transformation that needs to happen for management and employees to embrace a new, more social way of working. That is where Andy and the Enterprise Strategies team come in — they are seasoned business advisors and change architects. They don’t make the software, they make sure you get business value from it.”

James Harding, Associate Director of Global Communications

“Our employees told us we needed better digital collaboration. To that end, we partnered with Enterprise Strategies to strategize, plan and launch a proof-of-concept for Yammer as our internal social network, beginning with our annual Global Conference for our 300 top executives. Enterprise Strategies provided invaluable community management support by answering questions, connecting colleagues, and creating help materials to increase Yammer adoption. Following real-time support during the Global Conference, ES helped facilitate a week of live Strategy Jams on Yammer with global leaders answering live questions about our new firm strategy. Our Yammer proof-of-concept with ES achieved all our primary goals, created strong business cases and generated ongoing interest in using Yammer worldwide.”

Kare Anderson, Columnist, Author, Speaker

“While several consultancies provide social media and social business strategy, few have been able to craft and help implement a companywide social transformation, tying ‘social’ solutions to meaningful business objectives. Having worked in several large firms and served as a trusted advisor for others, Jankowski understands, first-hand, the complexities involved in implementing a new way of working which is vital when making such a major change as strategically instituting ‘social’ structures and systems company wide. Yet that is, by far, the best way for companies to harness its social power and to bypass the pitfalls of smaller, sometimes conflicting internal social initiatives. The devil is in the details. Andy’s understanding of these details as well as his approach of proactive executive prepping through the social transformation ensures that his suggested stages of social change are actually implemented and sustained. He lives up to his company promise, to ‘operationalize social business’ in firms.”
