Online Community Health Check Service Overview

  1. 1. Online Community Health Check Program Overview
  2. 2. ® Online Community Health Check 2 • The Online Community Health Check is a research-based diagnostic that surfaces strengths and opportunities, and offers actionable short & long-term recommendations. • There is a 70-point assessment that is informed by a site review, interviews, document review and a checklist. • It’s fast! We can conduct a health check in 4-5 days (but it will take about 2 – 3 weeks to schedule and conduct interviews and receive / review all documents from your organization). • This is not an attempt to assign a score or benchmark against other online community initiatives. community-healthcheck-brochure

  4. 4. ® The Process Involves A Comprehensive Review Across Five Dimensions of The Site 4 Information is gathered through a combination of a simple questionnaire, a series of interviews, site review and select document review.
  5. 5. ® Each Of The Five Dimensions Consists Of A Series Of Diagnostic Areas 5 For instance, with Engagement & Growth, we will explore a series of six diagnostic areas. Diagnostic Area Source of Information Question Member Acquisition & Profile Interview Can community leaders clearly state their target audience and the reasons why? Site review Does the existing membership profile reflect the target audience? Site review How complete are member profiles?
  6. 6. ® The Process Yields A Qualitative Assessment And A Series Of Actionable Observations For Each Dimension Of The Site 6 The findings (from the questionnaire, series of interviews, site review, select document review) behind each of the diagnostic areas are aggregated. An visual, qualitative assessment is then offered for each dimension. A series of actionable observations including strengths, opportunities for improvement, short & long-term recommendations are offered.

  8. 8. ® Concluding Remarks 8 • The Online Community Health Check is not intended to produce a score or serve as a benchmark, rather it is intended to surface both underlying strengths and opportunities for improvement. • Both short and long-term recommendations are intended to be highly actionable. • The concept behind the research-based diagnostic is to help organizations enhance their existing online community initiative to achieve: ‒ better alignment with member requirements: ∙ Member-to-member ∙ Member-to-sponsoring organization ‒ better alignment with key business processes and strategic objectives
