A community of practice (CoP) is like a home. Some are under construction, some are well built but need an upgrade, some are being remodeled, and some are well put together with beautiful fixtures and decorations. Generally, we are only inclined to invite outsiders into our homes when they are presentable. Similarly, with CoPs, there are times when our house should remain private and times when we open the doors for outsiders to come in. World Vision has taken this approach in recent years, opening some of its CoPs to include external peers. In this presentation, World Vision shares its CoP journey and how external community membership became both a leadership priority and a technical necessity.
