Community of Practice Maturity model

Understand how Communities of Practice mature through their lifecycle, from potential, to forming, maturing and self-sustaining.

The Tacit Community of Practice Maturity Model identifies the different phases of a community of practice and highlights areas that can help it progress towards self-sustaining.

The content is based on research and experience across different organisations over several years.

Version 1 of the model appeared in the book Building Successful Communities of Practice: Discover How Connecting People Makes Better Organisations.

Current version 4.6 last updated November 2022
