Hi Matthew,

You might make inquiries on com-prac
( ) and on LinkedIn ( ).
Also, I'd be happy to include it in the next weekly newsletter I send to members.

I think it would help recruitment if you'd say more about your background or
the context of your research project.

Subject: [sikmleaders] Trolling for willing Communities of Practice

I am research a question regarding the determinants of CoP success, and
looking for firms and CoPs that are interested in participating.

What you get out of it are:

1. The research results across many firms 2. Specific output of two of the
instruments I have created that pinpoint gaps/opportunities in the knowledge
environment and learning climate, as well as CoP maturity on a quasi-CMMI
3. A small amount of my time to discuss and explain and make suggestions.

If this is interesting to you or your firm, please email me at
