After reflecting on communities’ engagement and starting a community, the themes of designing, onboarding, and hosting a community come to mind. Those activities are the next natural steps of any community instigator and host.
Where the heck everything starts 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 ‘starting’ a community‘ – enriched with some thoughts on the ways and which a community could be designed, onboarded, hosted and supported.
