Thank you for your message,
I'd like to know
1) What activities I'm need to do every day
2) How can I plan my community?
3) How can I engage my members?
4) How can I show an importance from Community Manager inside the company?
Might be worth you asking Claire Flanagan if this course will be re-run or if you can access the content - https://community.jivesoftware.com/groups/internal-community-managers/blog/2013/12/11/register-now-community-management-fundamentals-training-starts-dec-19
I did two of the original TheCR WOMMA courses and they are very good. Quite a lot of the content is external but much of the goodness works equally well internally.
Beni there is a great book on Community Management The Art of Community - O'Reilly Media by Jono Bacon which might help you formulate this. Also i would highly recommend that you attend the Community Leadership Summit in Portland on July 18-19 Community Leadership Summit | Community Leadership Summit its free.
Thank for your tip, but I live in Brazil.
Here is part of a slide deck that I share with my clients, it may help you as well.
The below image is one of the slides that I love to use.

Thank you so much
benikuhn ,from my experience, I like to ask a potential community manager a simple question....a very simple question to see how they see perceive Human interactions and Communities... "As the Community Manager, what does the phrase "What If?" mean to you?" I go on to clarify, that "Communities can be very powerful enablers that unleash imagination, knowledge, curiosity, and most importantly, emotions...so I will ask again, what does the phrase "What If?" mean to you as a potential Community Manager?"
Seeing how they answer the question lets me know how they are "wired" for the role
Beni - in our company the Community Managers are business representatives nominated by the sponsors to drive the use cases, adoption, and effect 'the transformation' to achieve business results. The CM is generally a respected, approachable person in the department (the 'go to'), very knowledgeable in the process and goals of the business area. Here is the definition I share in a blog in our Community Managers group (some of which I took from material I found in here):
Community Manager - this role is assigned to the user(s) in charge of a business community. The role is assigned at the business initiation phase of the (Jive/name) journey, and the assignment is agreed with the business sponsor. The community manager works with the on-boarding team to assess the current business process and identify where (Jive/name) can drive value through deployment of business use cases. The community manager helps to design (Jive/name) spaces and groups, supports on-boarding of members, and is responsible for animation, monitoring activity and moderating content.
Here are the Community Manager roles & responsibilities:
- leads the community
- enables the community to grow
- leads by example
- evangelizes and educates their business organization on the value and use of the community
- aligns business sponsor objectives with use cases and ROI
- develops use cases and discovers new ways of working
- develops community roll-out and communication plans
- encourages and leads user adoption
- feeds back information to the community sponsor regarding adoption, user needs, and resources
- monitors adoption to ensure action is taken when activity is below expectations
- works with the support team to develop specific training materials for the community
- escalates to the business sponsor / steering committee regarding unsolved issues
- acts as subject matter expert for the community on Vibe
- owns and monitors the community help area
- answers any questions
- liaise with support team regarding issues
- develops best practice materials
- attends community managers meetings
- leads the community
