Do your job better - because you want to, 29 Sep 2002
For years I've experienced a work environment where my time is cluttered with many meetings that have little to do with my real work (Information System architecture and design) and few that do. Reading through this book has given me the motivation and means to go about improving my work situation along with other colleagues who want to do a better job, simply because we want to do so.
There are plenty of practical illustrations of the concepts taken from the work place. These help you spot the starting points for your work in your own organisation. If this is your first encounter with Communities of Practice then the book is a good starting point. Making the subject accessible in a way that other academic discourses on the subject do not.
