The world is getting smaller and more puzzling. We seem to be pulled along by the empty promise of a fix or a solution. What becomes increasingly clear is that if there is anyone out there with a solution to any of the myriad of pressing problems consciously chimed into our collective psyche they are conspicuously silent. Perhaps the silence is quiet submission. Perhaps we are finally at the point where collective wisdom can find it purpose, perhaps community, the ongoing and active exchange of values, perspectives and experiences can present the opportunity for progress. Knowledge and action perfectly combined to create change for the better. Is that the essence of Community of Practice?
