In doing so members consistently alter their previous understandings. 26 As appeal for communities of practice grew Wenger more fully developed the community of practice construct (1998). Community and practice are related through mutual engagement, joint enterprise, and a shared repertoire. Community members within and between communities negotiate meaning through the complementary processes of participation and reification. Participation is an inherently social activity. Employees work together and in the process build relationships.

This research seeks to 40 contribute to the understanding of the characteristics of communities of practice and the nature of the work performed. This paper argued that the roles of job title, location, and management intention were unclear in the current communities of practice literature. The study used the common social network measures of connectedness, density, graph theoretic distance, and core I periphery fit of various groups of communities of practice as defined by job title, location, and management intention and determined how these measure aligned with community of practice theory.

2003 Kluwer Academic Publishers. 24 specific terms and categories used by scholars to describe know1edge differ, they generally agree that there is something special about knowledge thtt enables firms to create value and achieve competitive advantage (Winter, 1987; Kogut and Zander, 1992; Teece, Rumelt, Dosi, and Winter, 1994; Davenport and Prusak:, 1998). The communities of practice phenomenon has been extensively described in qualitative terms, but there has been relatively little research using quantitative techniques, specifically social network analysis.
