As most of you would have received the survey I thought it pertinent to revise the discussion around the CPP and what it means for everyone. You may remember this discussion we had late last year introducing the CPP https://www.experts-exchange.com/discussions/221179/Strategic-Adjustment-Next-Steps-for-Experts-Exchange.html
. This introduced the idea and the discussion continued into early 2019.
The goal is the same and heavily focused around Expert Recognition. We all like to be rewarded in one way or another for our contributions, whether it's a certificate, trophy, t-shirt, an Asker selecting a solution!, or just a mention in the monthly newsletter. We did find that the recognition in place didn't completely satisfy enough members; it was too heavy in one area (e.g. t-shirts), given out incorrectly and ultimately meant nothing to the outside world (think telling your prospective employer that you're a Guru). So it's about the perceived value in that recognition so that you can promote yourself if that's what you're after and on the other hand be motivated to contribute more through that positive feedback.
What you're now seeing some of those ideas start to come to fruition. The Verified/Trusted/Renowned status of a vetted Expert, the expert dashboard, the peer review system are just the start and by no means finished. The survey's aim was to get feedback on the direction and gaps in the recognition of Experts to improve upon what we already have as well as to fill those gaps.
This discussion is for you to ask questions about the program and share any ideas or concerns.
