Denovati SMART Articles

Helping You Use New Tools to do Old Things. Smartly.

Overview

Denovati SMART Articles are the primary means by which we share thought leadership on the applications and implications of social and digital technologies in organizations. These articles are primarily targeted to organizational leaders and others who are in the early stages of climbing their digital technology learning curves. People with more advanced knowledge can also benefit from the ideas conveyed, in addition to adding their own expertise and perspectives by commenting on specific posts and contributing their own content.

Denovati SMART Articles explore Digital Era topics from both conceptual and tactical perspectives, focusing on opportunities as well as challenges. We strive to share best practices and how-to guidance whenever possible. Topical categories include external engagement (including marketing and branding), intra-organizational applications, human capital management, individual engagement and professional development, leadership, and strategy development and implementation.

History

Denovati SMART Articles evolved from the SMART Blog, which began in February 2010, on the Social Media in Organizations Community (SMinOrgs) website (as the S.M.A.R.T. Blog). In the spirit of our digital community, the name was proposed by member Denise Bundgaard and selected via a group vote.

When we developed the Denovati identity, we decided to keep the original blog name because it was still inclusive of all digital communication technologies, not just social media. We also liked the idea that it reinforced the importance of leveraging social and digital technologies in smart ways.

In addition to retaining the name, we have maintained our original commitment to provide high quality content that increases people’s digital competencies and enhances the ability of both individuals and organizations to be successful in the Digital Era.

In addition to retaining the name, we plan to continue to provide high quality content that increases people’s digital competencies and enhances the ability of both individuals and organizations to be successful in the Digital Era.
