Content Curation: One More Role for an Enterprise Community Manager

ID Reflections

The scene within an enterprise is not much different. The lifespan of enterprises are declining rapidly. And the only way an enterprise can survive is by being on the cutting edge of their field, by being adaptive and by making the right decisions quickly. This requires a quick access to the hive mind of the enterprise and an ability to connect the dots to make sense of the underlying pattern. What role can an enterprise community manager play? Faced with the tsunami of information, we are all floundering to find our way to content that actually matters.

The Six Hats of a Community Manager

ID Reflections

The premise of this post is that when an organisation makesa conscious effort to move towards a more social way of doing business, itusually begins with the introduction of an enterprise collaboration platform.Employees, who have been using emails and, perhaps, mailing lists and googlegroups till then as their mode of communication and collaboration, are now expected touse the collaboration platform for their day to day business. Jive SBS --the platform we use--has certain useful widgets that let us do so.However, the curation part is manual. Ambiguity will doom anychange effort.

As an enterprise community manager, I am often faced withvaried user questions and needs. Before I move on let me briefly explain how Jive --whichpowers our social platform--works.

The other reflects what the user is Tracking --and Jive makes a subtledistinction between " follow "and " track ". user experience activity stream TweetDeck Jive Twitter communication Hootsuite

JIVE's clearspace takes social networking behind the firewall

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

I've been watching Clearspace as one of those Enterprise products that just might have that something special that finally brings the Web2.0 experience behind the firewall. R/WW reports tonight that Jive Software is releasing Clearspace2.0 USAToday recently said that "Jive Software wants to be the Apple Computer of corporate social networks." The best way to try to describe it may be to say it's like a combination of Facebook, Google Docs, Netvibes/Pageflakes, Meebo and a little bit of Basecamp - for the enterprise. Jive calls itself a "social productivity" service.

Lurking is Not a Static State

ID Reflections

have recently taken on enterprise community facilitation and was curious to see how people are interacting on our enterprise collaboration platform. The analytics told me that over 40% of the users are Active Users (a term Jive uses to describe all users who log in to consume content without necessarily interacting with the content in any manner). They are the free riders.

ESN as knowledge bridges

Learning and Working on the Web

Enterprise social networks (ESN) are growing in usage in most large organizations. single enterprise network does not provide much individual control. Forcing PKM does not work.

From “learning technologies” to “social technologies”

Jane Hart

Whereas many individuals are happy to use their own social  tools to power their own and their team’ activities, most organisations generally prefer them to use some sort of internal enterprise platform to keep the conversations and content private and secure. Member profiling. Activity streams. Real-time updates. Threaded discussions. Notifications. Group spaces. File sharing areas.

Learning and Working on the Web

By 2009, I saw PKM as the missing component of most enterprise KM efforts. As enterprises become more closely tied to the Web, the principle of “small pieces loosely joined”  was beginning to permeate industrial walls. The simplest level is enterprise KM, which ensures that important decisions are recorded, codified, and easily available for retrieval. Early Tools.

Mentoring or Coaching: What’s Best for Your Company?

CLO Magazine

Most talent development programs in enterprise corporations will use mentoring to supplement their coaching initiatives. Some enterprises have tried using social software such as Yammer or Jive to connect individuals, but without a formal mentoring or coaching structure, this approach is not sufficient to achieve measurable results. Mentoring and coaching strategies translate to better employee engagement and retention. But it pays to know the key differences between coaching and mentoring to implement an effective program. Desired outcomes: What should program results be?

5 Questions to Ask When Setting up Communities

ID Reflections

have mentioned in my earlier post here that we have launched an enterprise-wide collaboration platform powered by Jive. Communities/groups in an enterprise setting form to serve different purposes. Communities within an enterprise have specific objectives to achieve, goals and tasks to collaborate towards—all of which should ideally help the organization to move closer to its overarching goals and vision. While the terms community management and community manager are more popular, I have never found them very comfortable to use. Anyhow, I digress. That's the vision!

Social Learning: Top Down Versus Bottom Up

Examples of this type of technology include Jive and SharePoint. A lot of the communication that happens on such platforms tends to be of a non-business nature, such as interactions among affinity groups or dialogue about social activities.

Companies look at pricing, product features and ease of use when determining the L&D technology that is right for them.
