Re: Communities of practice, and right technology platforms, enablers to effectively facilitate the community #CoP
I second what Chris said, the WB toolkit is indeed a very useful resource that can help in setting up and managing communities.
I would recommend you the following resources that supported me a lot in establishing some of the IFAD communities.
- The WB’s Building Community: A primer (prior to the toolkit’s launch; it is a very detailed and practical publication with several templates you might adapt to your context/needs)
- Attached a case study from UNICEF (Paola Storchi), this can help you a lot on the point you made about “the value communities can bring to business”.
- The UNICEF’s Knowledge Exchange Toolbox, at the very end there is a whole section on Online Communities
Happy to connect and discuss about CoPs if you want!
Thanks and Best, Ilaria
