"*Communities of Practice, CoPs*, is another one.

CoPs periodically become fashionable, I’ve founded and run a few CoPs in my time and I’ve studied, them, heck I think I even wrote about them in Changing Software Development. But… whenever I’ve seen someone set out to create a community of practice they fail.

The trick is not to call it a CoP. Call it a group, a study group, a tech group, a community, just about anything but a community of practice. A community of practice is semi-academic term to describe an observed phenomenon. Decide one what you really want not an abstract idea."

(talk from 2013) min 9:40 "Technical practices are very important for Agile. One of the common problems we run into when we see companies struggling with agile is that they take the project management stuff but don't take the technical stuff and they get into a great deal of difficulties by doing this because they don't have software that it's designed for change".

I should print this part and put in on some walls.
