It Can Be Done! Growing an Architects' Community: My Journey

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Passionate individuals and businesses both try to create successful Communities of Practice (CoPs) for myriad reasons, from honest desire to networking to a financially driven goal of sharpening worker skills. Why do some well-funded efforts fail while rag-tag startups succeed? In this session, hear the story of my struggles and successes to grow a networked community of architects that now stretches across the globe. There is no single formula to creating a successful community. But if you've got passion and take the time to really ask "Why?" your journey will start off on the right foot! Choose vision-driven techniques over old-school mechanics to jump-start new groups or resurrect ailing ones. You will walk away energized and ready to try a few of the techniques that worked, such as

  • using qualitative and quantitative measures to define success and detect a bust
  • leveraging value, brand, and localization to create ownership and pride at all levels
  • applying Agile concepts to community leadership for transparency, communication, and continual evaluation of next steps
