Communities of Practice

“Communities of Practice are groups of people who share a concern or passion for something that they do – and they learn how to do it better as they interact regularly” (Etienne Wenger, 2005.)”

Through communities we’ll provide safe spaces for discussion which allow people from different disciplines and organisations to come together and share information, ideas and experience. Sharing experiences and learning can support a growth mindset and building sustainable communities of practice will help grow capability and deliver digital change in Wales.

These communities can be created around roles, an area of interest or a particular way of working. Communities can help members create the space within their day-to-day jobs to get better at what they do, together.

We want these communities to generate discussion and create a sense of excitement about delivering better public services. These communities will help grow capability and deliver digital change in Wales.

We’re looking at what communities already exist and whether building new communities could support better service delivery.
