As we rebuild our "technology voice" inside CSC the communities provide the amplifier so you can be heard too. My challenge to everyone is to think about one simple thing you can do to get more involved, that would help your "day job"
Soren Helsted
we should all involve at least one of our colleagues who is not involved already... guess most of us on this tweet chat are already involved to some level
Chris Fangmann
Suggestion: Whenever you need help or someone to brainstorm with, instead of going to the colleague at the next desk, ask the communities - and include the colleague at the next desk
Lisa Braun
One thing is to blog or start a discussion in C3 on a topic of interest to you or that you need help with. Get a mini community going around you as a start.
Soren Helsted
use twitter when sharing (non confidential info) with your colleagues as it makes others chip in as it is publicly available
Heather Simpson πŸŒˆπŸƒ
@LisaAnneBraun agree, start a thread and then cross-promote in other channels--if we see it and can do so, we'll help! and agree, @sorenhelsted, we need a "bring a friend" day to an upcoming transformation meeting, town hall (Oct 2) or soundbites!
Lisa Braun
@heatherscsc @sorenhelsted I like that "bring a friend" day/idea.
Helen Jones
Great idea @heatherscsc i love the idea of encouraging people to bring a friend along to the Town Hall
Sorin Costea
@heatherscsc @sorenhelsted this "bring in a friend day" is a great idea to increase community involvement!
Chris Fangmann
@heatherscsc So ICP will be based on how many people one engages?
Heather Simpson πŸŒˆπŸƒ
Invite a friend to our next Transformation Town Hall, Oct 2: https://plus.google...., get them to RSVP via G+, tweet us using #cscbringafriend and we'll add you to our #csctechawesomeness list
October 2 Technology Transformation Town Hall and CrowdChat - Google+
Join us as we kick off the next phase of our @118416213869891352236 Technology Transformation, looking back at our progress and forward to preview the next phase of our tech transformation strategy and program plan. @100398710978866863311 and @116020...

Why does everybody fully understand and embrace team work and for so many it's so hard to accept virtual communities as team extensions?
Sorin Costea
teamwork means sitting next to your mate, sweating and cursing together... Virtual teamwork is a stretch despite all communication channels, so it's a matter where each one is putting his fences
Chris Fangmann
@sorincos I guess this is the mental switch we all have to make - I consider virtual teams as fully operational & functioning teams - as you said below, we need to brag about success stories
Soren Helsted
agree about the mental switch - and while physical teams only engage when they are together, you can always engage in your virtual teams
Heather Simpson πŸŒˆπŸƒ
I hear you on that one! And, @sorincos I understand what you're saying, but for some of us, its not a choice, and I can jump into an impromptu hangout session with most...and sweating and cursing is totally appropr in sametime, right?
Chris Fangmann
@heatherscsc Even can include the virtual gathering after day's work.....#Wine@Nine :-)
Sorin Costea
@sorenhelsted should we recommend some readings or trainings on the soft skills side of working virtual?
Soren Helsted
@sorincos starting to participate in the technology transformation is the on-the-job-training that I will propose
Chris Fangmann
@sorincos @sorenhelsted There's a lot to read on the matter - but (might not work for everybody) I just suggest to jump in. Some guidance maybe via sessions like we did when we started TechTransformation
Sorin Costea
@heatherscsc yes and no - no smiley will fully replace THAT sulky look :)
Sorin Costea
@sorenhelsted virtual teamwork will always be a "shared" form of individual work, or a team where the individual matters much much more
Chris Fangmann
Also look at the "giving" side - if you share your expertise you'll improve reputation, become more "wanted" and suddenly receive a real lot interesting tasks & questions
Nigel Barron
In theory Chris. We have to recognise and reward the behaviours and then they will become habits.
Chris Fangmann
@NigelBarron I know what you mean, Nigel - but there actually is (at least for me) quite a nice portion of reward given automatically - the feedback of the communities
Soren Helsted
always be giving, it build your digital reputation as a good citizen and you will always be rewarded
Nigel Barron
Hence your behaviours have become habits. Not everyone seeks recignition and reward in the same vein.
Sorin Costea
as @NigelBarron puts it, it won't work for everybody. My best mate here doesn't give a zit on collaboration yet still is the goto for many tech issues
Chris Fangmann
@sorincos Then we need to convince this colleague - find out his sweet spot
Lisa Braun
Sounds like the larger culture change effort we are all undertaking.
Nigel Barron
@sorincos That's a great pitty Sorin as his/her insights could be useful to CSCers all over the world
Helen Jones
Hi all--Thanks for joining us! Feel free to submit questions and discussion for the Communities Team They'll be joining us here at 20-25 past the hour. See them live now at https://plus.google....

CSC has a rich network of technology-related communities that can help you learn and perform well.  These communities provide a wide range of opportunities for you to connect with your peers, get help from experts and share your expertise and ideas. ...

How to encourage/attract people to join a community?
Chris Fangmann
Lead by example - be part of communities and show how fast they can help you to a) get better and b) get tasks done in higher quality and increased speed
Soren Helsted
work through communities, being it C3 or twitter or G+ and invite people there to participate
Sorin Costea
@ngocdotw @ChrisFangmann @sorenhelsted We could use some "community success stories"...
Sorin Costea
Stackoverflow is hard to beat on technical stuff, maybe CSC should maintain only the company-specific communities - I mean verticals, offerings, processes
Ngoc V Do
I think Bob's talks (slide Be Leader - Noticed) have answered some parts
Heather Simpson πŸŒˆπŸƒ
@ngocdotw when you figure this out, let me know : ) We try and encourage collaboration and communication in our communities, and then cross-promote in other community and social channels...but there are so many communities I think it gets confusing!
Sorin Costea
@heatherscsc I don't think there's a success recipe for communities, but there's enough writing on best practices
Bob Donnelly
@sorincos Stackoverflow and others are good for focused questions. How do we bridge IaaS, PaaS, SaaS into a full stack? That is something a CSC community can help answer.
Paul
Our video session today was slightly longer than usua - but as you could see there was a lot of ground to cover. Trying to reflect the richness of the tech communities is tough - but most easily seen at TechCom where all this comes to life!!
Ernesto Diaz
How can we leverage awareness for our communities (i.e apply M1 - Mobile First)
Chris Fangmann
talk about it, tweet about it, blog about it - and whenever you meet a person that should be involved but is not, ask the big WHY?????
Lisa Braun
I would say use the tools at hand - C3, twitter, G+, etc.
Nigel Barron

Agree. Social is a component of the tech manifesto: to be highly connected, active on social, and plugged into industry-shaping movements (eg, OSS).
James Eaton
Are Sharon's slides from this session available on C3 or will they be made available here?
Chris Fangmann
You can actually always view the full session on YouTube if this helps
Soren Helsted
@ChrisFangmann the slides were only shown in a small window some of the time and difficult to read
Sorin Costea
you mean these slides? https://c3.csc.com/d...

Thanks for organizing, Paul - and thanks to all speakers!
Chris Fangmann
Have you noticed that when writing questions and answers - even in brainstorming community mode - there's no need anymore to write minutes? It's automatically there :-)
Doesn't work with phone calls
