W2 Introduction

The general concept was there, we had many ideas about sections, content and functionalities but the central problem still remained - how can we put all this together? Some fundamental questions had to be answered before proceeding and these questions were the focus of the second workshop.

W2 power questions:

  • Which are the user groups (who will use it) of the online community and which are the target groups (who do we want to reach)?
  • Hedgehog concept - What are the core competences of the SRM community? What will it be best at? Passionate about? What drives us in to it?
  • How can we keep this alive and secure active ownership?

Please see the W2 central issues in the PPT below, before proceeding with the results of the workshop.
