A lot of people are familiar with Reddit's "Ask Me Anything" forums, where some of the world's most fascinating people will take on any question from passionate fans. While we at Jive might not be able to land Joan Jett or President Obama (yet), our community members have integrated the AMA concept into the Jive platform to showcase their amazing executives. This type of outreach connects corporate leaders with their employees, and creates top notch content to showcase broad thinking throughout the entire company.
So, who made this possible? Our community members, of course! After David F. Carr InformationWeek asked for Tips on hosting an executive Town Hall online?, four of Jive's most active thought leaders (Tracy Maurer, Nikki Bussard, Jem Janik) chimed in to discuss best practices. Not only that, but Jacqui Chan of Deutsche Bank took it a step further and composed A Guide to organise an AMA on Jive so that everyone can maximize their Jive experience. Her "critical success factors" outlined:
- Choice of executive to kick-start your AMA movement
- Engagement rules
- The "I GAVE" principle
- Having a curated list of AMA guidelines handy for easy reference
