Community Equity - a way to measure Social Capital for an enterprise

Have you ever thought about how you might gain Social Capital in your  live ?
By inviting friends, participating in communities (like a church, a sports club etc.) and other social interactions you create personal Social Capital.

But how do you measure it? In the real live you  might have friends which help you in a bad situation or you get invited for a party and so on ....

Wouldn't it be interesting to have a way to measure the Social Capital in an enterprise ?

Why?  Because we could give the individual  and answer to the most important question

" What is in it for me "
 

As part of our Customer Engineering CE2.0 project we are developing a measurable Community Equity System 

The idea is pretty simple - lets measure the contribution, participation, skills and role equity of a person.

Community equity  

Then we combine the Community equity values with the aggregated profile information of  a person

pull to push

 

.... and then we can build user specific and dynamic mashup services  based on the users need...

 

Use Case:

 

  1. A user specifies that she/he needs help to develop a certain skills or expertise ( lets say AJAX programming) and create a Skills tags with a personal rating 1 (= need help).
  2. The system  dynamically generates a list of internal & external trainings, books, experts  based on their Community equity  value...
  3. The user takes an online training on Ajax programming and passes the final training test
  4. The training application updates the Skills equity of the person by updating the training equity
  5. The overall Skills equity of the person increases ...

Pretty cool stuff I guess .... and YES we are looking in all the data privacy issues.

 

We are very interested  in  existing or evolving standards for rating, voting, commenting  services etc.
specially in the Semantic Web space... Just leave a comment with a pointer ... Thanks!

Comments:

The only standards at the moment that come to mind are the vote-rel stuff comming from microformats.org and foaf (rdf). I think foaf could be due for an update with your topic here taken into consideration.

It's not clear to me if the recommendations are based on the equity of the person, or the books/training (things) themselves.

http://revyu.com/ uses some semantic web annotations on it's reviews, eg.
