A great little blog post from Tim McDonald at My Community Manager that ask
… is Santa the ultimate community manager?
A good community manager listens to the members of the community
Santa reads all those letters from children of what they want for Christmas
A good community manager empowers member of the community to self-govern
Santa empowers parents and children to behave during the entire year
A good community manager always knows how to measure the community
Santa makes a list and checks it twice
A good community manager let’s everyone know they’re there without having to be seen
Santa leaves cookie crumbs.
A good community manager knows where to find their community
Santa makes stops at 108 million homes, in one day!
So we have Santa as the best community manager. But who is the worst?
I wonder if Darth Vader may appear on that list and else who would be on your list?
So what are the remedies to a community that has a cold?
If you can Identifying the symptoms you can would out the diagnosis.
This will then lead to the remedies. The remedies maybe anything from rest to exercise, anti-biotics to herbal remedies
These are a range of symptoms. So what remedies would you devise for the symptoms? And can you guess which film or television series the different diagnosis are from?
Back on the 5th of December I was asked if I could do a little presentation about Knowledge Management in a Project and Programme Environment at the newly formed APM Knowledge SIG
It was a personal story about where my original role as a Knowledge Co-ordinator came about to support projects and how things have changed from being project based to more programme based and how Communities of practice have support them.
I have added my presentation at the bottom, due to the two other people also presenting on that day.
Dr Jon Whitty, senior lecturer in project management at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia and Brendan McAndrew of Mouchel.
Jon talked about the Swiss Cheese Model and how this can be used with Project and Programmes, were as Brendan spoke about the use of Knowledge Management and Communities of Practice at Mouchel.
Below are the three presentations and this is a link to the Storify from the day
