After reflecting on communities’ engagement and starting a community, designing, onboarding, and hosting a community come to mind. Those activities are the next natural steps of any community instigator and host.
Where does everything start with designing, onboarding, and hosting a community of practice or a learning community? Especially when communities go remote and distributed. Any community professional would say first with community strategy and design, right?
Instead of writing a longish new post, here is below a flowchart I produced via Whimsical. First, there are the three scenarios I shared in the post on starting’ a community – enriched with some thoughts on how a community could be designed, onboarded, hosted and supported.
