Create a knowledge community

What is a knowledge community?

Towards the end of the last century, the idea of knowledge sharing was put to use in the corporate world and a broader form of CoP (Communities of practice) evolved which was known as "knowledge communities."

The basic difference between CoP and knowledge communities is that the scope of member participation is clearly defined by a job description (such as farmer's community) in CoP, whereas in the case of knowledge communities member participation is wide open and in some cases covers all the employees working in a big organization (Yamazaki, 2004).

The benefits of creating knowledge communities

● knowledge management in one central place

● knowledge sharing through varying methods (blogs, comments,

discussions, shares)

● efficient and easy onboarding of new community members

● alignment across the community

● ease to scale and grow
