What is a Community of Practice?
Communities of Practice (CoPs) are self-organized, voluntary groups of people who have a common interest in a specific technical or business domain who come together to share knowledge. They come together regularly to exchange ideas, work on a problem, improve their skills or gain more knowledge of a domain.
Organisations with a healthy CoP eco systems benefit from improved camaraderie, rapid problem solving, cooperation and retention of talent, as well as increasing the overall knowledge capital of their people.
This health check gives you insight into the current state of the CoP that your teams may, or may not, be involved in and to help better understand the current effectiveness of them. This gives you the data you need to help fuel continuous learning and to create more meaningful conversations across the organisation.
