Request a Community of Practice
Individuals or groups interested in establishing a Community of Practice (CoP) or requesting an enhancement to an existing CoP should email DAUHelp@dau.mil. The Collaboration Business Owner receives and reviews all requests for new communities.
Establishing a CoP is an evolutionary process and new communities will not be approved unless the following are met:
- Community objectives have been thoroughly thought out.
- Appropriate roles and responsibilities have been assigned.
- Key community leaders accept their respective content management responsibilities.
Establishing a New Community
DAU uses a three-phased approach to guide those interested in establishing a Community of Practice. The phases are as follows:
- Get Started
- Implement and Build
- Launch and Operate
Refer to the Guide to Establishing Communities for additional information about each of the three phases summarized in the graphic below.
