What is a Community of Practices?
A Community of Practice (abbreviated to CoP for simplicity) is a group of enthusiastic PMI members who want to exchange ideas and share experiences also through publications in the respective "field". The aim is to generate new ideas and concepts for practical application, which can then be used in practice.
Every day we are not in the ivory tower of theory, but try to find out which concepts, approaches or ideas work or work particularly well. Therefore, the focus of a CoP should be on the "P" - namely "practice".
Which types of CoPs do exist?
We know of two types of CoPs....
For the general difference between a thematic CoP and an industry CoP, you can listen to these two podcasts:
The CoP PMO - Project Management Office
The CoP Life Sciences - Projects in the Biotech Environment
Which CoPs do exist?
In principle, there are an infinite number. But we are starting with a handful first, also to gain experience and see how the interaction works. The CoPs are realised by the Volunteers of the PMI Germany Chapter.
