Communities of Practice

Whether you work individually, in a group, internally or independently, where do you go for reference?

  • Who is your audience for a test-drive or run-through before a big presentation?
  • Looking for a new perspective with a vexing situation, where do you search?

Many OD professionals use large groups or the internet. Some have found, however, that small groups of can offer invaluable opportunities for growth, renewal and just plain help!

  • How do these groups form?
  • How does one go about creating a group?

These are just some of the facets concerning Communities of Practice. Join us as we explore this topic and get to know each other.
