Title: Building a community of practice within the corporate training environment.
(Due to corporate restrictions, I cannot post AR details outside of the Pepperdine community. For professors and review panel members: please contact me via my Pepperdine email for a copy of my AR report.)
Executive Summary:
The focus of this research paper is the development of corporate learning best practices and effective knowledge management utilizing a learning Community of Practice (CoP). The literature shows that there is much initial work and collaboration that needs to be done when implementing change in order to achieve success. There were many examples of failure due to lack of buy-in from members. The research on communities of practice was very interrelated to knowledge management, signifying the correlation between the two and making it clear that a successful CoP was not complete until the paradigm of learning shifted to envelop the emerging theories of human capital. By changing the paradigm to viewing intellectual capital as a key asset of the business, learning can be viewed more strategically.
