Communities of practice have been described to be a key aspect of IT implementations or any product for that matter. They are theoretically supposed to encourage sharing of knowledge and increase buy in. What are your experiences in creating these communities?
1. How did you go about setting up the community?
2. How is it supported?
3. Who are the members and how often do they contribute?
4. What technology(if any) is used to facilitate discussions?
A community of practice is a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. - Wenger-Trayner
