Thoughts from Inside PTC R&D: Communities for Product Development

This is the next installment in a series of blogs I am posting on how PTC R&D is approaching Social Product Development from an application development perspective. My R&D team is working hard to create some very interesting and innovative software. One of the components of this software is Communities for Product Development... and that is my topic for this post.

In the video below, I discuss how PTC is working to enable two types of communities that will help with colloboration during product development activities. The first is around "Product Communities", where project teams can come together with new Web 2.0 tools and have community type conversations around their products managed in the PTC Product Development System. The second type of community is around "Communities of Practice", where like minded individuals who have a common professional interest can come together to share knowledge and information.
