SAP Community Network (SCN)

Paul Kurchina - KurMeta Group

Connector, Analyst, and Community Catalyst in the SAP Ecosystem

Having spent the past twenty years improving business operations in SAP and other industry technologies, Paul now focuses on the role of The Connector, as Malcolm Gladwell defines it in The Tipping Point, as " people in a community who know large numbers of people and who are in the habit of making introductions ". Taking a broad view of the overall industry and using a large network of stakeholders, Paul proactively seeks to bring people together who will benefit from sharing their mutual experiences and business know-how.

He also plays the role of Industry Analyst, keeping track of developments in existing and new technologies used to improve the business performance of corporations. By understanding what is working and what is not, Paul is able not only to connect like-minded people effectively, but also create pinpoint connections from people to Business and Technology that accelerates value.

Paul takes great pride in discovering a new thought leader or business solution that may have gone, until then, relatively undetected in the industry, and bringing that valuable asset to the attention of a wider audience. The insights and results help to accelerate the message to the people who most need to hear it, and benefit the ecosystem as a whole. In this sense, Paul's identity is that of an explorer or a discoverer who is eager to explain and share what has been found. Once a new network of connections has formed to support this rising thought leader or business solution, Paul then acts as a community catalyst in creating a new community, or engaging an existing community to focus the conversations that ensue such that the discovery leads to benefits for the community and its members.
