Community of Practice (CoP) is no longer an alien term for professionals in the software field. CoPs matter because they facilitate knowledge sharing, problem-solving, skill development, innovation, and collaboration, all of which contribute to individual and organizational success in today's dynamic and knowledge-driven world. As fascinating and exciting CoP may sound, setting up one and leading it towards success is altogether a different game.

While leading Communities of Practice can be quite rewarding, it does not come without any hurdles and obstacles. But don’t you worry! With over eight years of hands-on experience in leading Testing CoP and over 15 years of experience in the software testing + quality management field, Lalit would share his lessons learned whilst doing it all.
