Communities of Practice

Communities of practice are groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.

PRSM’s Communities of Practice give our members a chance to engage in joint activities and discussions, help each other, and share information building relationships that enable them to learn from each other.

Communities develop their practice through a variety of activities.

  • Problem Solving
  • Requests for information
  • Seeking experience
  • Reusing assets
  • Coordination and synergy
  • Discussing developments
  • Documentation projects
  • Visits
  • Mapping knowledge and identifying gaps
