While at the SHARE 2012 Conference, Stephanie Donahue recently caught up with Antony Clay, Chief Strategy Officer with 21apps. Antony’s mission at 21apps is to help bring a business focus around the work the company does, vs. the technology focus. He evaluates new initiatives to determine how a “go to market” strategy might exist around SharePoint.
Antony is passionate about Hybrid Organizations, a term coined by Microsoft UK. Now called the Anywhere Organization, it is a new way of working – helping bring people, processes, and environment together to support a more effective engagement to drive value. Anywhere Organization reflects the changes in the workforce, especially with younger workers, who are more predisposed to collaboration and team efforts.
This collaboration is what sets the stage for enabling social media around the SharePoint, which Antony contends is simply just collaboration on steroids – collaborating by breaking down the walls of what is internal and external work effort.
Antony also talked to us about innovation games, which is a creative way to allow people to interact and facilitate SharePoint requirements gathering.
