CEMEX started a journey to innovate through the use of social networks in 2009. Being one of the early-adopters of IBM Connections, its journey has yielded great results.
However, the market conditions for the construction market have changed, and CEMEX needs to prepare itself for a scalable operating model to sustain the collaboration culture that it was introduced a few years ago.
A new global networks model has then been created, in which key representatives of the network are embedded into the organization. This facilitates the development of new policies: the “playbooks” to be replicated in our daily operations.
Never before were the networks so empowered as today, and this shows in our new model. Through the deployment of our very own CEMEXpedia, we intend to capture the knowledge spread throughout our organization and facilitate its replication.
Let us share with you our learnings and how we envision a truly interconnected, global network.
