Knowedge Development Within Communities Of Practice Using Organizational Learning


  • Emil Scarlat
  • Iulia Mărieș


Knowledge assets are a critical resource that can generate a competitive advantage for organizations. Generally, knowledge can be divided in explicit knowledge and tacit knowledge. Organizations focus on managing the explicit knowledge and also on capturing the tacit knowledge embedded in the individuals’ experiences. Knowledge development represents the main purpose of the knowledge management domain, in both research and applications. Through the interactions in social networks, community-based knowledge development and sharing have become very effective tools. In this context, more and more organizations are developing communities of practice as strategic tools for knowledge development and sharing within the organization and across organizational boundaries.
