Q1 2023 Recap: Tons of Co-Creation and the Newest Consortium Innovator!

This community has been as vibrant as ever so far this year, working together on some compelling new resources and gathering together at the energizing 2023 Member Summit!

Catch Up on Member Summit

I had a brilliant time, thanks to everyone involved in putting this together and to all those who joined us! It was awesome to finally meet people I’ve spoken to, or heard from often, from the Consortium and beyond for several years now. Looking forward to the next one!

On the final day of Member Summit, we surprised Kendall Brenneise by announcing he is our latest Consortium Innovator!!!

Kendall, especially over the last few years, has done a lot to pick up ideas, iterate on them, turn them into operational models, and move a lot of our works forward. It’s an honor to welcome him to the Innovator family!

New Public Resources

We’ve had several working groups collaborating over recent months to co-create valuable resources, and we were so pleased to announce their publication at Member Summit!

Join us at the Member Summit Recap on April 11 for an in-depth review of what we talked about. In addition to many events already scheduled, we’re planning follow-up conversations from Open Space discussions at Member Summit – stay tuned!

What terrific conversations [during Open Space]! Love being able to hear shared experiences and bounce ideas and thoughts with each other.

Community News

In February, Executive Director Matt Seaman met with the Consortium’s Leadership Committee to discuss maintaining long-term vision during short-term economic disruption. It was heartening to hear:

In "the year of efficiency" knowledge remains (or perhaps becomes all-the-more) the foundation of success. #cxstrategy - Kristin Hunter on LinkedIn
  • Member companies continue to realize that, as we’re being asked to do more with less, knowledge is a key asset for success and area to invest in.
  • Communication is as important as ever in terms of tying the value of knowledge to company goals.
  • Cost per solution delivered, not just cost per case or cases closed, continues to be a powerful way to demonstrate the value of a well-managed knowledge implementation (see Understanding Success by Channel for more!)
