Community is one of the most foundational concepts on which the Enterprise Architecture Professional Journal is based. This site is “by practitioners, for practioners”. Community is also what the Converge2023 Tour was about, when global thought-leader Whynde Kuehn came to Australia for a series of events with Architecture, Change and Transformation professionals from across the country.
It’s also one of the core concepts behind the Consultants Saying Things (CST) podcast, powered by Chris Lockhart, Phil Yanov, Whynde Kuehn and Oliver Cronk. That’s why it seemed a natural fit for Whynde and I to chat to the CST crew near the end of the Converge tour. I hope you enjoy listening to the team as we talk about subjects such as:
- Why do these communities matter? What problem are they solving?
- What are some challenges faced by consultants when seeking to build authentic, supportive networks?
- What are some strategies for a) finding a community to be part of; b) growing one of your own?
- How much does being ‘close-knit’ matter with these communities?
