Description

This booklet by José Andringa and Lidwien Reyn is designed for initiators, organisers and facilitators of Communities of Practice (CoP). Potential participants can also read this booklet to get an impression of what a CoP is.

In short, a Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a common interest or passion. It is a meeting place where professionals share analyses, inform and advise each other and develop new practices. 

This booklet explains how to set up your own CoP from start to finish, and answers, amongst others:

  • Who do you ask to participate?
  • How do you ensure that you’re actually developing something new?
  • What elements that belong in a CoP and should be included in its preparation?

The booklet lists the ingredients, but do not give a recipe. The booklet is intended as an invitation to develop your own suitable format based on these ingredients.
