Facilitating And Brokering Development And Integration Of Knowledge

Jacky Swan, Harry Scarbrough & Maxine Robertson
This emphasis on aligning practices has led clearly to the implication (albeit often implicit) that there is a critical role for management, as coordinators of organisational activity, in supporting and constructing communities of practice. The management role shifts, here, from one focused on command and control to that of 'system builder' –facilitating and brokering the development and integration of knowledge within and across communities (see Hughes, 1987). A number of specific tools and managerial tasks have been suggested for this purpose. For example, managers seeking to align practice should engage in 'participation' (actively seeking out people who belong to more than one community and supporting them in knowledge brokering) and 'translation' (framing the interests of one community in terms of another's worldview –Brown and Duguid, 2001a). Prescriptive recommendations regarding the ways in which management might actively intervene in the 'autonomous' operation of communities of practice have also become increasingly common (Liedtka, 1999; Lesser and Everest, 2001).
