As a knowledge management consultant, I’ve noticed the impact of community management on the flow of knowledge in enterprises, and increasingly, in customer support communities. Over the years, Venessa has been a fantastic sounding board, providing deep understanding of purpose and practices. She has helped me articulate the value of community management to an overall knowledge management strategy far more effectively.
