Welcome, Donna and Jean-Julien!
Donna, specific to your challenge, are you looking to educate your Learning organization on the value of Jive, regardless of whether it's internal or external? If for internal use, Jem Janik, Community Manager at Alcatel-Lucent, JUST updated Employee Community Activity Patterns in Large Organizations with a Learning-specific use pattern.
I love serendipity.
If external, you might gain some ideas about initial learning abilities from these Jive-powered sites:
Thanks Gia. I'm the Communities Manager here at SAS Canada; we've been using Jive for quite some time on some of our internal systems and looking forward to leveraging its power externally as well soon... love the functionality in here and excited for our community to begin to play and engage.
My biggest challenges will be internal, as they are with many, I suspect. Getting people's heads around a different way of engaging, connecting and leveraging those relationships can be tough! I have some strong internal supporters as well as a good process in place... now, it's all about making it happen. Planning, scheduling and adapting are also going to be key... I foresee many sleepless nights in the near future, but completely worth it...
Welcome to the community, Matt! If it helps in your efforts to get your colleagues bought into engaging with your customers/partners/etc. via Jive, check out these documents - you might be able to create a version of them specific for your situation:
Great to meet you. I was just checking out your community, I like your hero of the month. The template looks pretty familiar.
I just joined this group and am looking into enhancing our support community at NetApp.
Excited to be here. My name is Maggie Judge and I have a consulting business that focuses on helping companies build cultures of collaboration. I am looking forward to all that I know I can learn here.
Welcome! I too have a consulting business on social networking and enterprise collaboration. Where are you located? I am in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Hi Noreen....LOVE the name - readysetgosocial
I am based in Minnesota - www.insightadvisorgroup.com (however, still building the website, plan to launch next week)
Just left my job of 21 years in July
Do you find that companies are recognizing this need yet or that they need it "sold" to them?
We should talk off-line. Overall I find that the need for Social Networking they see. The collaboration piece is trickier and one that they will come to soon enough. Overall, companies are going along with one offs. Ready, Set, Go Social! represents what we do..we get involved where companies need help--from initial inquiry to strategy to launch to full enterprise collaboration (integration--piece).
Are you on linked in?
I'm the Community Development/Operations Manager for the element14 external community (www.element14.com/community). We're a community for electronic design engineers. Our community has been live since June 2008. We're currently running on 4.5.3 and have a customized instance. We are a global community so we have engineers from all around the world accessing our single instance and support 9 translated languages on the site.
I look forward to interacting with other external community managers and learning from all of you.
Welcome, Maggie and Christina! Noreen, thanks for being such a great community leader, as always!
I am a consultant and work with organizations using Jive. I help companies integrate their Social Networking and Social Media efforts so that enterprise collaboration becomes a reality.
In addition, I along with Kevin Crossman, coordinate the San Francisco Bay Area Jive Users Group. If anyone out there is located in the Bay Area we would like to invite you to attend the users group here on Jives Social Network you can find us by searching group in the Browse pull-downor Search bar. We also want to invite you to attend our Rolling Bay Area Users Group meetings. We meet once every two months at different locations to make sure that we are convenient to some subset of our users at any given time. We are currently looking for a host company for our next (Sept) meeting. Our meetings are fun and informative. We welcome sharing and participation. We actively share tips, tricks, and experience. So come spend a couple of hours with us. Meet fellow Jive users and learn from each other.
We're the market leader in social health in Australia. We have been BETA testing for 6 months to learn more about the community. WOW, so much feedback. We've taken all this onboard and are now we are driving towards Jive 5. Hoping to be over with the team at Jive World 11, just depends on release dates etc.
Hello Fellow Community Managers,
I am hoping to connect with many of you at JiveWorld; I am an External Community Manager at LivePerson and relatively new to Jive. Lots to learn! Find me via Twitter at @TerraIncognita. Feel free to reach out to me personally at any time.
See you in Sin City!
Hi there. I'm trying to learn how to be a community manager. I've been mostly faking it up until now, but realize there's much more that I could do if I had even a little more knowledge of what could be done. The good news is, maybe I'll be able to make it to JiveWorld next year!
