The Value of Communities of Practice

Abstract

Have you ever worked in an organisation where you were disconnected from other people with similar roles or passions?

If unchecked, agile working and multidisciplinary teams can silo organisations by teams, programmes and functions. These silos lead to duplication of work, pockets of knowledge, unrealised capability potential; even worse, it cuts people off from their support network. Our organisations are scaling, structures are flattening, workforces are increasingly fluid, and the future or where we work isn’t set. Connecting people and breaking down silos is more critical now than ever - this is where communities of practice come in.

Communities of practice bring people together who share common challenges and interests, connecting them to create something more significant than the people within it.

In this session, Emily Webber will draw from her experiences and research to share the benefits of communities of practice, the pitfalls and advice.

Live Q&A to finish.
