Case studies are an excellent learning resource and way to grasp community successes (and a few misses) by taking a deep dive into real-life examples, with honest and tangible results. At TheCR Network, we are grateful to have some of the most in-depth and detailed examples of community launches, advocacy programs and mentorships (just to name a few!) at our fingertips through our members and industry expert connections.
This week’s #throwbackthursday focuses on key learnings and insights via community case studies.
- Mentor Match: The Good, Bad and the Ugly On Getting a Program Started – In this guest post by Laura Brook, Director of Community Development at OneFPA.org and member of TheCR Network, you’ll see the good, the bad and the ugly on launching a mentoring program for financial planners.
- Recap: Community Manager Spotlight Webinar with Chris Catania, Walgreens – The Community Manager Spotlight series highlights a different person practicing community management at their company, putting faces to names, and providing case studies and best practices from a wide array of practitioners. In our inaugural webinar, we chatted with Chris Catania, who discussed his community journey at Walgreens, and how he and his team launched their social intranet, The Wall, and how they are using a big red sofa to connect with employees around the world.
- Community Management Case Study: The Evolution of a Community Advocacy Program – TheCR Network sat down with Erica Kuhl and Matt Brown from Salesforce to discuss a case study of Salesforce’s MVP program.
