I was having a conversation with a colleague about governance, rules and regulations and ‘thou shalt nots’ for our anticipated new social business platform yesterday.
We were discussing my previous employer’s Acceptable Usage Policy and what we may need to have in place for this new platform.
We decided on trust.
We trust our colleagues to behave appropriately, self regulate and in turn, they develop deeper trust and respect for the organisation and this leads to the platform being able to grow into what it needs to be, for all of us.
Plus, we only read policy if we think we’ve broken it…don’t we?
So that’s our starting point. I’ll update as we go along and roll with the challenges.
And…points for those who read this for the song reference alone.
