RE017 – Relationship 017 – Not Quite Silos
The frameworks in this series are useful in a few different ways. Information silos are towers of information with no capacity or inclination for sharing. These frameworks show silos in transition – either becoming silos or moving away from being silos. They are not fully integrated in terms of sharing.
Notice the information being conveyed in the series example:
- The different shapes indicate where in the organization the largest concentrations of information are located
- The sections of the organization can be labeled to identify the different tiers, e.g., management, support, functional areas
- The semitransparent colors and border lines make it possible to effectively show where sharing (overlap) occurs: farther apart indicates less sharing and a lot of overlap indicates more sharing
- The different shapes can also indicate where the sharing happens instead of where the largest concentrations of information are located.
This image is provided to show one example of how you could use this framework in a presentation.
