Why It is IMPORTANT to build communities of practice in your Agile Organization

Managers have the ability to split organizations into teams, programs and functions. This causes a deep level of ignorance, duplication of work, less knowledge sharing or even worst. In this case, people feel they are working alone and not supported which is the main 'WHY' people left their job and start seeking for better scope.

In order to avoid all those problems, organizations are making new changes and ways of transformation to make their collaborators more flexible. That's why communities of practice are built. In fact, the main reason is to create a link between different people and connect them independently from the team they are working on.

Those communities offer multiple important advantages to members and to organization. In this talk, Emna will brings examples of community of practice development within Ministry of Testing Sfax Meetups. She will show you why communities of practice are an important part of your agile organization and what role they can perform in the short and long term. Also she will refer to the importance of gamification in building those communities and other helpful strategies to connect people using different methods of fragmenting the organization such as spotify model.
