In my former and current organizations I held/hold monthly user group meetings where we discuss a specific topic in detail. I hold a second call that I call the Collaboration Showcase, but it is basically a show and tell where one of our group or community owners presents their story on how they use Jive to solve a business need, their lessons learned, success stories, etc. This really helps other teams get an idea of what it takes to get started, overcome challenges, hear use cases, etc.
I was wondering if the Internal Community Manager group would be interested in something similar. Either one or both types of calls. I know that I always get a lot out of hearing how other companies do things as well as discussing a topic in more detail. We could just call that the user group and alternate the type of session if twice a month is too much or we could try to do both, since there are a lot of topics to cover. But I know that we are all busy.
We could rotate who hosts and picks the topic. I'd be happy to help try to coordinate getting it started.
Please share your comments on this idea.
