“(the study) indicates that sponsors and leaders who are active in the same functional area (e.g., logistic processes, production and maintenance processes) meet regularly to form a ‘”governance committee”. This committee discusses and assesses the overall activity of the various CoPs in their specific functional area of the organization. The committee regularly assesses whether each CoP’s activity makes strategic sense for the organization, and how these activities can be presented to the top management to obtain additional financial support. There are several positive impacts that governance committees have on best practices if they are developed regularly: (i) Opportunity for inter-CoP sharing of a best practice (ii) Opportunity to merge CoPs (iii) Opportunities to benchmark activities across CoPs”.
