A Community of Practice is a group of people who interact regularly to share a concern or a passion for something they do, helping each other to learn how to do it better (Wenger, 2006). The overall purpose for the Organisational Change CoP is to provide a positive environment, network, and resource to connect individuals who have a passion for improving their change capability. We intend to do this by providing members with:
  • A safe, respectful and positive environment to exchange ideas, experiences, and problem-solve issues relating to organisational change
  • A repository containing a synthesis of relevant literature, best practices and innovations to help inform and support change
  • Tools and resources developed for change purposes specific to UQ that are continually updated and improved by its members
  • A Support hub of individuals from various organisational areas within UQ to support members through change
  • A network of members interested in improving change across UQ to increase collaboration and access to relevant individuals within the University 
  • A means of identifying UQ’s strengths and weaknesses to further enhance its ability to engage in change
