As a matter of fact, CoPs are everywhere. One reason is because the CoP offers the people plus content combination again. A second reason is that the CoP suits the medium. Learning in a CoP is not a matter of tranference from an active teacher to a passive consumer. (A

The first volume deals with colocated (offline) CoPs, while volume 2 looks at distributed or virtual environments. The very concept of a CoP has left several of my management and academic colleagues non-plussed. (’If they have always existed then what’s the big deal?’) For one thing, we are now developing an archived history of the learning that can be used in the future, including learner comments and all the rest.

From: Sanjay Swarup , Expert Replicating Proven Practices To add to comments made by Stan, here are some of my experiences at Ford Motor Company where I supported and managed 54 Communities of Practice (CoPs): For any CoP to survive/thrive, the role of an active executive sponsor is vital.

But we have not found a coherent, complete set of measurements that could be used to consistently evaluate not just one CoP, but a set of them, and eventually even to benchmark different ones, along most of the lines that can be affected by management.

John Tropea - Delicious Community

In order to establish an effective CoP, it’s necessary first to think about the nature and structure of a community and recognize that it’s an entirely different entity from a work group or a project team.
