Building a Vibrant Community “Paying It Forward”

In the article, I believe the tagline “Paying It Forward” is well suited to the story Building a Vibrant on Line Community.

As we go life building our careers, it would be nice to know that there is a place you can go to receive the guidance, knowledge and lessons learned in order to ensure your success.  I’m not sure about most of you, but that was not always the case for me.  Most of the time you needed to be in the “know” and had little opportunity to “share” your experiences to many.


As you read the story, you will hear from three community members on how you may take information but giving back is more rewarding. 


A few powerful quotations:

“My father always told me that the more you share your knowledge, the more knowledge you get in return“…Remembering this – and seeing others asking questions about well-known SAP software issues – I was motivated to join SAP Community. Vikash Krishna


The community had nurtured me by answering my questions in the CRM forums. Now I was able to give back to the community by sharing the knowledge that I had gained and populated the CRM Wiki with detailed documentation.” Melanie Lauber


 “I envisioned community members being able to solve their problems in less time by referencing existing information found in the Wiki.” Stephen Johannes


The process, (a special Thank you, Stephen from all of us!) is easy and takes little time. When you have a complete answer in a forum; detailed how to’s; proven process implementation documentation; detailed blogs – place them in the CRM wiki for all to share.


The SAP CRM BPX is our “vibrant community” because of the contributions “to” and “from” all community members.


Let’s continue “Paying It Forward“!
