Communities of practice (CoPs) are groups of people with significant interpersonal ties built through the process of collective learning about a common practice . Research about CoPs has concentrated on their role in knowledge management, with results that demonstrate their value for knowledge creation, knowledge sharing and as repositories of knowledge [7; 14; 16; 25; 29].
