Podcast Episode 32 – Communities of Practice

Welcome to another episode of the Testing Peers Podcast.

This week join the Peers, as we discuss Communities of Practice.

After a brief cake disagreement, the Peers dive into the topic.

We define what we define a CoP as, including what the name is, what it means, as well as what other names we feel this falls under. Ultimately, we lean into the most important word in the name, community.

We also share our experiences in starting them, working in them successes and failures.

We reference Leigh Rathbone‘s article on LinkedIn: Communities of Practice, the why, the what, the how, and the who.

While we didn’t touch on it in the recording, we highly recommend Lee Marshall‘s Testing Ask Me Anything – Communities of Practice.

Thank you for listening. Please do get in touch if you would like to know more or would like to give us feedback to help us improve and grow.
