Knowledge management toolkit for communities of practice

Knowledge management toolkit for communities of practice

This SPARC Knowledge Management Toolkit briefly describes the knowledge management cycle and how it can provide a working framework for communities of practice – people with common concerns or problems – to extract and share knowledge. The toolkit explains the differences between communities of practice and work teams, and how communities of practice can help sustain change and encourage replication beyond the community itself.

The toolkit outlines how to form communities of practice, who should be involved, how communities of practice should be facilitated, how and when members should meet and what knowledge is useful to capture. It is a useful guide to both knowledge management and communities of practice.
