Creating Ownership in a Community of Practice

The fourth article in a five-part series exploring the value of Communities of Practice (CoPs). The series uses findings from a research project undertaken between UK Coaching and The Albion Foundation to demonstrate the impact of CoPs on coach learning and development

For a community of practice (CoP) to become sustainable, and keep going over a period of time, the CoP should be driven by the people taking part in it. 

Giving CoP members a true sense of ownership of their group can contribute to this and help the CoP become a rich learning environment for all involved. 

In a recent research project, a collaboration between UK Coaching and The Albion Foundation, this was implemented by passing responsibility for leading and facilitating the sessions onto the members of the CoP.

Below is a description of how this happened.
