Productive Synergism:
Fostering a Culture of Collaboration with SharePoint 2010
By Deen Ferrell, Business Development Executive, Cal Net Technology GroupCorporate synergy occurs when corporations interact congruently. (Wikipedia.org/wiki/Synergism)
I have always loved the concept of 
synergism
.
In its purest sense, it means achieving a sumthat is more than the combined value of its individual parts
.
In the organization, this is doneby building upon a collaborative process where ideas are allowed to collide, evolve, andcreate an energy all their own, independent of the energy of individual contributors
.
 This process has never been more viable than it is today with Microsoft SharePoint 2010
.
 Finally, organizations have a tool that allows their people to work together in ways that aremost effective for
them
.
Whether through the desktop, the internet browser, or the mobiledevice, people can access their data quickly and efficiently, contributing to the corporatedialog in real-time so that ideas, processes, and conclusions are fluid and ever evolving in atireless quest toward realizing organizational goals
.
 Take, for example, The Greater St
.
Louis Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, anorganization where leaders were tasked with bringing together 37 counties, 56,000 youngpeople, 1,100 Cub Packs, Boy Scout troops and Venturing crews, with 80 full-timeemployees and over 15,000 volunteers
.
The goal was to create a way that wouldintelligently organize and empower the flow of ideas and communication between thevarious groups and individuals
.
 Joe Mueller, Director of Public Relations, speaks of the decision to turn to MicrosoftSharePoint 2010; ³We want to harness the passion and creativity of volunteers²that¶s whywe¶ve been so successful for 100 years
.
Paid staff just provides support
.
Giving volunteersthe ability to create and publish content will directly improve the quality and relevance of our programs«Our new SharePoint Server 2010 Web site has the potential to improve ouroverall program quality and help us grow Scouting
.
Our constituents will be able to getinformation faster and get better-quality information
.
This will help our leaders deliverbetter programs to kids«the Web is the entry portal for everyone who is shopping forprograms, looking to volunteer or otherwise engage in Scouting
.´ 
 Kevin McCallum, Chief Architect at Quicken Loans, faced a similar challenge, tasked withfinding a business collaboration platform for multiple companies on multiple infrastructuresover multiple networks in multiple configurations
.
Quicken wanted an enterprise-levelplatform with advanced search capabilities and the ability to manage and centralizeinformation for their sister companies, maintaining control over content access
.
Kevinturned to SharePoint
.
³We used SharePoint Server 2010 to leverage the strengths in all of our various companies and tie them together for maximum synergies
.
At Quicken Loans, wecall this µpulling the threads
.
¶ 
´ 
 After the launch of ThreadNation
.
com, Quicken Loans intends to incorporate socialcomputing features like executive blogs or an ³Idea Factory,
´ 
in which business proposalscan be reviewed and rated
.
It also plans to add business collaboration tools like workflows
