Sample idea in "Social Intranets": Communities of Practice as a packaged Jive solution

There are no ideas showing in the "Ideas" content-section of "Social Intranets", so here's one just to see how the appear and function.


It looks to me like Jive would be quite well suited to offer "packaged solutions" for the applications I'm currently looking into: Communities of Practice (COPs) and Communities of Interest (COIs), and the larger universe of Knowledge Management, which includes Communities of Practice/Interest.


COPs/COIs are widely used by major corporations -- I was at a conference this spring with many major companies either attending or presenting from pharmaceuticals (Merck, Pfizer, Amgen), a lot of the oil industry, and major consulting companies (Deloitte, Accenture), among others.


Offering a Communities of Practice/Interest package would hardly even need a "package", other than a sales pitch -- the "group" functionality I think may be sufficient, but the terminology would need to be adjusted to talk about multiple communities rather than *a* Jive community, to put it in te linguistic framework of COP practitioners.


More value-added might be achieved with a Knowledge Management package.  Communities of practice and interest could form its centerpiece, but offering several modes (participation scopes) of ideation would be part of it, and adding a "prediction market" capability would add to the uniqueness of the package.  Being able to anonymize certain ideation challenges would give the package a "Delphi" capability that would also set it apart.  Being able to set an "expiration date" on some content (especially uploaded files) would make it easy for community members to see what information has potentially gone stale and may need to be updated.  There's more, but this will do to start.
