“communities of practice are a practical way to frame the task of managing knowledge. They provide a concrete organizational infrastructure for realizing the dream of a learning organization.”
Etienne Wenger, Cultivating Communities of Practice: A Guide to Managing Knowledge
“COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE are groups of people who share a concern, a set of problems, or a passion about a topic, and who deepen their knowledge and expertise in this area by interacting on an ongoing basis.”
Etienne Wenger, Cultivating Communities of Practice: A Guide to Managing Knowledge
“We need others to complement and develop our own expertise. This collective character of knowledge does not mean that individuals don’t count. In fact, the best communities welcome strong personalities and encourage disagreements and debates. Controversy is part of what makes a community vital, effective, and productive.”
Etienne Wenger, Cultivating Communities of Practice: A Guide to Managing Knowledge
