CoP Series #6: Community Leadership in Learning

Nancy White

Subject matter expert - in CoP lingo, these are the people who have a sharp focus on the domain (see CoP Series #2 ). Again, in CoP lingo, the tutor may be focused both on domain and it’s application: practice (see CoP Series #4 ).

Monday Video: 4 Perspectives on CoP Evaluation

Nancy White

via Nancy White of Full Circle Associates on CoPs – YouTube. I often have a “deer in the headlight&# look when someone asks me about evaluating communities of practice. I think that is because I have some stereotype in my head about evaluation.

Coping with so many flavors of CoP

Learning Alliances

Murrillo suggests that the recent decline in practitioner-oriented journals is “a symptom of the CoP concept becoming mainstream, an accepted addition to the Management vernacular.&#.

CoP Series #5: Is my community a community of practice?

Nancy White

Many people get worried about making sure their group is a CoP. In our first post on Communities of Practice (CoPs) we disabused ourselves of the confusion between a community and the platform that allows a community to interact together online. Is a team a CoP?

CoP Series #8: Content and Community

Nancy White

In CoP terms, this is “reification.&# While we have human bees in platform, particularly in the community context mentioned “across courses&# in the last blog post (see cop-series-7-roles-and-scalability/ ), we can use technology to scale human curation.

In the study, one of the causes that led to the dysfunctionality of the CoP was the lack of a leadership renewal process.

Creative Destruction and CoPs

Joitske Hulsebosch

I've been thinking about creative destruction recently because of a speaker I was recruiting reminded me of the term. It's both the subtext of a series I'm organizing for my local Organization Development Network community and, by encouraging the use of a wiki for community note-taking, I think I'm engaging in it a bit.

Culture and how it will influence CoPs

Joitske Hulsebosch

The last onion: how might national cultural dimensions influence the functioning of a CoP in that country? Hence, CoPs in these countries may tend to go for more formalisation than in countries with low uncertainty avoidance where CoPs may remain more informal and organic?

CoPs and retrospective coherence

However a CoP "Roll out" plan always gets me worried. They provide an example and hopefully a stimulation to others in the organization that a COP is a useful why to share and exploit knowledge. Perhaps, a more relevant question is who has the power in a CoP to lead and who follows.

Communities of practice: dynamics of CoPs in the Netherlands

Joitske Hulsebosch

When I met Marc Coenders on Tuesday, who has written a book about communities of practice and has extensive experiences with CoPs in the Netherlands, I decided to pilot my first interview (to be honest I had carried my camera two times before without daring to ask the interviewees for an interview.). I asked him: ' what are the specific dynamics of CoPs in the Netherlands ?'

Communities of practice: expertise in CoPs

Joitske Hulsebosch

While reading my bloglines back in the Netherlands, I came across this post by Anecdote. It was so relevant to me that I decided to crosspost it on my own blog. In Ghana I had the impression my 3 years of work experience in Takoradi, Ghana, is still helping me in my work in Ghana, even though my current work is with different partners and in a completely different field (ICT4D). But I would have a hard time if I'd had to pinpoint to where it changes my practices/interventions.

Dysfunctionality: CoPs going adrift

John Tropea - Delicious Community

The CoP is terminally dysfunctional if it is not doing what it’s funded or authorized for; of if it is not doing what we (members, founders) signed up for. And it usually results in people voting with their feet or their wallet, killing the CoP. Community management level: There are several things (indicators, symptoms) that can tell us that the CoP is not working smoothly, and most may be managed away with the right levers.
