IdeaJam mentioned in a Harvard Business Review paper

Tags: ideajam press media


In a recent Harvard Business Review paper entitled "Who Moved My Cube?" by Anne-Laure Fayard and John Weeks, Lotus Notes and Elguji's IdeaJam innovation software were inlcuded in the "Providing Virtual Permission" section of the paper:

"Networking applications such as LinkedIn, Lotus Notes, IdeaJam, and Twitter can tear down walls, but they can also create them: We’ve seen virtual-team members get so involved in their digital world that they become disengaged from the people right next to them."

The "Who Moved My Cube" paper is available for purchase on the Harvard Business Review website >
