Communities of practice a brief introduction by Etienne and Beverly Wenger-Trayner
My organization design practice, which introduced integrated structures (teams, communities, and networks), began in the mid 1980’s. It offered a bridge between Peck’s community-building in the early 1980’s and Wenger’s communities of practice in the early 1990’s.
And this exercise was a trip down memory lane!
That one indeed is a man who, today, dedicateth himself to the service of the entire human race. The Great Being saith: Blessed and happy is he that ariseth to promote the best interests of the peoples and kindreds of the earth. In another passage He hath proclaimed: It is not for him to pride himself who loveth his own country, but rather for him who loveth the whole world. The earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens. 1 2
