The Journey Towards Discovering “Purpose” Is More
Valuable Than The Statement
Purpose Statement
Structure
Which people,
collaborating
why, to deliver
what value to
themselves, the
community, and
the business.

Sample Opportunity Statements
• Employees collaborate on posing and
answering customer questions and
can locate people for expert advice,
providing community support and
improved customer service.
• Sales and product teams collaborate
on ideas for new or enhanced product
packaging to make selling easier
thereby increasing revenue per
salesperson.
• Service staff collaborate on ways to
improve processes (such as towel life
cycle management) to make their job
more efficient and accelerate the pace
of new hotel assimilation.

The New Charter For IT Organizations In The Digital
Workplace
ITO Partnership With Human Relations:
• Promotion of employee engagement
• Focus on work/life balance, wellness, user experience
• Data on demographics, changing work, changing roles and responsibilities
An Expanded Role For The IT Organization:
• Brings "Shadow IT” and employees themselves into overall strategy
• Consumer-like focus includes branding, marketing, and employee experience
• Involved in non-traditional IT activities
Focus on Organizational Change:
• C-suite visibility and commitment to a collaborative culture
• Constantly challenge existing practices and assumptions
• Engagement is the foundation for collaboration in the digital workplace

Recommendations
Do:
Approach Digital Workplace as a multi-year program
with varying levels of business, organizational and
employee (personal) metrics
Include multiple strategies that mix top-down / middleout / bottom-up
Invest in governance and community-building across
leadership & workforce
Redo:
Re-visit ongoing portal, content, collaboration,
unified communications and enterprise social
networking for DW inclusion
Re-think IT application and service delivery as a
means to improve engagement between IT and
employees
© 2015 Gartner, Inc. and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
Don't Do:
Treat Digital Workplace as a technology-driven
effort
Approach Digital Workplace as a single project
Forget the HR partnership
Ignore the need for organizational change
Undo:
Digital Workplace is the next-gen intranet
Digital Workplace is just the convergence of
portal, unified communications, collaboration
and social
Employee engagement is the job of human
resources and not the IT organization
