  • Driving employee morale

  • Transforming the business

Create a vision statement

To help you write your vision statement, consider these questions:

  • What are your organization’s core values?

  • How will Yammer benefit the organization?

  • What are your organization’s top initiatives for this fiscal year?

Decide on your business outcomes

Create a list of business outcomes that you will use to measure the success of your Yammer network. These could include:

  • Executive engagement

  • Create community

  • Foster innovation

Gather key stakeholders

You will need to make sure you have the right people helping launch your network. Depending on your organization, these stakeholders could be project managers, IT specialists, or executive sponsors. This team will help establish expectations, create excitement, and communicate important details for the roll out.

Build a launch plan

Your launch can coincide with the release of a new product or with the announcement of a new executive leader. No matter how you plan your launch, organizing key events and communications will help your network be a success.
