A knowledge council is a group of representatives from each of the departments or teams that are using Guru, who meet regularly to collaborate, share best practices, and maintain Guru at the highest level to ensure it's serving the needs of each and every department. At the beginning of the Deep Dive (0-18:00), we walked through how to: Identify stakeholders to join your knowledge council. Develop your Guru goals and governance structure to set maintenance expectations. Outline council responsibilities for members to consistently manage and update Guru. Define your internal comms approach for updating and supporting knowledge council members.

Whether you work in an office, from home, or a hybrid of the two, let’s be honest...we’re all still figuring it out. Staying connected across time zones, while maintaining an efficient and productive workflow, keeping morale high for our teams, and not burning out in the process is a lot to juggle.At Guru, we’re always curious to find inspiration and insights for how we can work better together in our current hybrid working world.

What do you think about this new community platform in comparison to our Slack community?Happy Monday Thanks so much for all of the feedback so far, please keep it coming! To kick off week two of our early access period, I'd love to hear your thoughts on our plan to phase out the Slack community in the near future. Here's some important context:We're on the free version of Slack, and as such message history gets wiped out frequently because we've far exceeded the messaging cap. This means there is no searchable history of all of the rich knowledge sharing that happens over time. Note: this is just one drawback to maintaining our community on Slack; it's an amazing tool for internal collaboration, but even Slack has said very clearly that it's not built for communities like ours. We believe the best experience for Guru Community members is to have one go-to place for asking questions, sharing tips and advice, and connecting with the community and Guru team. That said, we welcome feedb

Yesterday we gathered to hear tips from Martin Theobald, Knowledge Manager at Crisp and Matt Garren, Senior CSM at Guru for centralizing knowledge and structuring content in Guru. Common challenges folks raised around this topic include: Knowledge is all over the place, living in people’s heads and multiple platforms Investing time into knowledge is perceived as difficult Structuring content and keeping it verified within Guru is an initial blocker and ongoing challenge Tips & Tricks for Centralizing Knowledge:Survey team members and review existing technology to evaluate KM landscape Lean on energized teammates to accelerate a culture shift Focus on centralizing the knowledge you need now—don’t try to boil the ocean Walk team members through an activity to help them identify their knowledge needs and break down knowledge creation into manageable sprints When creating information architecture, consider: Access controls Content structure When mapping content

The Product Feedback area is the best place to share your thoughts on what could be different.

In order for us to quickly get to the heart of what you’re sharing, we ask that you keep the following tips in mind when posting feedback.Describe the problem, not the solution Give details, provide examples, and tell us about the problem you’re trying to work through.
