Is anyone interested in doing meetings based on a theme each time? I'm thinking functional themes such as Sales, Product Development, Service, HR, Corporate Communications, etc. If we picked a theme for each meeting then we might be able to include employees from that business area who could mingle and learn from each other, not just the Jive-focused employees from each company.
Anything in March is going to be tough for me with work commitments, family stuff and a planned spring break vacation in late March. But April is probably okay.
I haven't hosted at Lilly in Indy yet...although it may not be a great central location for this group...and I may need more warning to put one together. But if we have no other options, I could see what I could work out.
Topic-wise...I'm flexible. Things top of mind for me this year are:
- Education / Positioning for the "best tools for the job" for users in a multi-platform environment
- Getting better at teaching the critical "work out loud behaviors" that go along with understanding the tools
- Looking 2-3 years ahead
- Collaboration activity hub / aggregation / consumption strategy (again, given a multi-platform environment)
- Success Stories (at a local business process, team, project level as opposed to at an org level)...similar to Dennis Pearce's suggestion.
