The Six Hats Of A Community Manager


Community Management is an evolving role and organizations are beginning to see the need for this role. In this post, I want to talk about the different hats that we need to don as community managers. This shift calls for some intense community management and community building, and the post focuses on the different roles a community manager needs to play during this time. Needless to say, we need to be cheerleaders for our community.

I wrote about the tenets of community management based on my experience. In this post, I want to highlight the importance of community management as a discipline that can enable organizations to take on the challenges and complexities of the future of work.

Content Curation: One More Role for an Enterprise Community Manager

ID Reflections

How does this tie in with the role of a community manager, you may ask! What role can an enterprise community manager play? In this case, the community manager's role would be akin to that of a museum curator. Some of these can be achieved via the user interface design and the use of pre-built widgets that allow community managers to pull in content defined with specific tags and categories. This can be made as general or as granular depending on the community's need.

Taxonomy 101 from an Association Learning Technology Perspective

Web Courseworks

Professional associations have a mandate to present and offer well-organized content and information to their communities of members and practitioners, but the process of creating and maintaining informational schemes that are relevant to end users doesn’t always overlap with designing to meet basic administrative needs. If you adopt a robust hierarchical structure, develop a process for controlling the vocabulary of the community.

The future of libraries?

Clark Quinn

They were some of the first to deal with the issues involved in content organization, leading to information science, and their insight into tagging and finding is still influencing content architecture and engineering. He aptly pointed out how this is a natural way to use the fact that libraries tend to exist on public money; to become an even richer part of supporting the community.

I usually start by tagging based on the project name. I like that the Clip Organizer already does a lot of the tagging because it pulls from the project folder and file name.
