And you get to know the capabilities of your employees only when you make them work what you want to get out of them! 
That is all what it takes for your employee to deliver. If he does, he can and will be your active right shoulder till you are not over him. You just need to test them!

It is true that the employers do want everything perfect but you have to know the capabilities of each of your employees.

I am totally in love with this article!! WOW, great work needs appreciation and so here I am. These days in large and huge organizations social networking is a must and technology gives it a push when it comes to communication between employees. It is essential and must be impressed upon greatly! I have heard about YaMMer before, but now surely I will "YAM" about it too!

Yes but they need to get the maximum out of what they have and by trying to do so they end up expecting more from one person rather than trying to get what he or she can offer.

@cloudy, companies aren't necessarily looking for everything from the customer. And regulatory issues concerning privacy won't allow for it. But certain legally obtainable metrics, upon consent, are enough for ad companies to use for marketing products and services for those viewing the freemium content.

Does this mean Yammer will replace the water cooler or be an addition to it? --"One challenge has been getting Tyco management to understand that chat at work about nonbusiness topics is a positive thing, not a waste of time. "If one employee is telling another about a great purse she bought, that isn't frivolous chitchat. It's two employees working to establish a relationship, get to know one another, set up the foundation -- the glue -- that helps them work together better." 

@ Agile - Re: Atos, emails surely could be made more efficent.  I'm a big fan of E.O.M. (End of message in the title) so that a reader only needs to read the subject line and not even open the email.   I suspect though Atos may find a Twitter feed or an application such as Yammer is open to the same abuse and clutter as email. Look at all the followers on Twitter that are spam.

Technology and people are support functions essential for the continuity of business. The driving force for the business success is the innovative and implementable business idea. Right technology and right people that are most compatible with the central business idea can ensure the business success. But without the business idea, neither the technology nor the people are garuntor of success.

Hence my equation being:-

Successful business idea + Right people + right technology = success

"If their complaints are removed and they are asked to test the system based on their feedback, they will be more accepting of the change."

This is very true, Nasimson. It still does vary from employee to employee, but this is probably a place where a little goes a long way. The difference from making no concessions to your employees to making a small one is huge, and if we're talking about something you need their support on, it could be a must. Social media certainly fits that category, and especially if we're talking about people scared to take the plunge, knowing they have a say could mean a ton.

Of course, there will always be holdouts. But you have to make sure you get that number as low as possible before you say 'I've done all I can'.
