I am trying to do a bit of benchmarking to see where my organization fits within overall costs to develop a community of practice. I know this is a sensitive topic, but can anyone share the general sector they developed a community of practice for (i.e. higher ed, healthcare), the budget range for initial development/support (>$500k, $500k-$1m, $1-$3m, $3m+), time it took to develop, size of community, and objective?
We are running into the issue of trying to compare apples to apples in order to keep moving forward. For context, we have build a hybrid community platform on top of an existing platform. Our goal is to connect people to people and people to content within the higher ed (specifically engineering education) sector. We have a custom built solution for content creation and collaboration, while using mostly out of the box functionality for groups and forums.
