What's a common misconception most folks (community or not) might have about enterprise communities? Any particular theories/myths you'd like to publicly debunk? ;)

YES!!! I would love to set the record straight here. Just because you’re at a big company doesn’t mean you are making it rain headcount and 100 dollar bills (or Euros or Yen or Rupees- you get the point) to run your community. You might have an opportunity here and there to lean on other teams for certain types of resources or support, but you also have a ton more red tape and structure to navigate than you would at a smaller company. Things take so much longer. You can’t be as nimble.
