A video on communities of practice by Rio Tinto

le 9 novembre 2008 par


This video by Mark Bennett is really excellent to explain in simple terms how a community of practice works, how technology can make it global, and how it contributes to the global integration of a company

« … [through communities of practice] we come closer to being one Rio Tinto, all over the world. »

At the end of the video, the CEO Energy of RIO Tinto concludes that it’s about creating global interdependencies between employees.
What is really strange is that I keep on hearing about big corporate programs aiming at integrating operations on a global basis, and that very few of them actually consider communities and social networks as the core of the program. Why weaselwords are still considered effective is beyond me.
