Coakes, Elayne and Smith, Peter A.C. (2007) Supporting innovation: communities of practice and change. Journal of Knowledge Management Practice, 8 (S1). ISSN 1705-9232Full text not available from this repository.
This paper discusses the idea that Communities of Practice are the place where innovation takes place in organisations. Innovation leaders and opinion leaders, the paper argues, are to be found by analysing the trust-tagged social networks that are to be found in organisations. The trust networks support the development of this capability by building and sustaining the Social Capital necessary for innovation and opinion leaders to develop, flourish, and support their communities.
