    Compliments on the article! Although what I am missing in your Discovery phase is the identification of the problem that the organization is aiming to solve with the social solution. I believe that is exactly one of the main reasons why social business solutions fail in the early implementation phases. At least what we are seeing is that our customers have gone through these cycles often several times just to discover that they have no clue what they are actually are looking for.
