The Power of Communities of Practice CukeUp 2017


Published on

Communities (like the BDD community) are so important to develop expertise, experience and knowledge of a practice. Emily helps organisations build communities of practice centred around roles that benefit the members of that community and the organisation that they sit in. In this talk, she'll talk about what makes a community successful and what you can do to start your own in your organisation.
