For TheCR Network members and clients we work with, research about community management is becoming increasingly important as social business programs grow. Community managers and their executive stakeholders have a lot of questions about how to make sound business decisions regarding communities.
Our mission at The Community Roundtable is to provide community leaders and stakeholders with research and information that supports good decisions about their community programs. Since 2010, the State of Community Management research has helped the market:
- Understand the components and competencies of business communities.
- Build community and social program roadmaps.
- Compare the maturity of their organization’s community program.
- Ask questions and explore options about ways to grow your community program.
- Establish credibility and executive support.
We are excited to make all of this research available as a toolkit.
