The Value of Community

“Community” is a hot topic, but what does it mean?  I’ve been seeing the word thrown around by a lot of different brands lately – “Join our community of coffee lovers” or “Be a part of our vegetable-loving community and get great recipes and advice.”  I guess brands are realizing the value of community and the massive potential for driving the business.

But should the primary purpose of a community be about driving the business? Not to me. In my opinion, the primary purpose of community should be about the community.

What does “community” mean, anyway?  For ProjectMangement.com, a “community” is a group of people who share an interest, fate, or purpose. A community has shared values. A community has shared symbols that show a united identity.

open house imageWe take our community very seriously. Our members help to create valuable content for us to share with other project managers around the world. It’s our members who ask the tough questions and challenge the status quo. Our members not only grow the community, they help to shape it.

Which is why we are celebrating our community on ProjectManagement.com all day long on March 16, 2015. We’d like to think of it as an “Open House” to all members, whether they’re new or early adopters. We’ll be offering lots of content around collaborating and team building (ahem, see that “community” theme?). To sweeten the deal, we’re even giving away some prizes!

So, stop by ProjectManagement.com at any time on March 16th and celebrate with us. Hope to see you there!

ADVERTISEMENTS

"Nearly every great advance in science arises from a crisis in the old theory, through an endeavor to find a way out of the difficulties created. We must examine old ideas, old theories, although they belong to the past, for this is the only way to understand the importance of the new ones and the extent of their validity."

- Albert Einstein
