Balancing control and autonomy in communities of practice : governance patterns and knowledge in nine multinationals

Borzillo, Stefano (Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, HES-SO // University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland)

This research aims to uncover three forms of communities of practice (CoPs), based on a set of six governance mechanisms. The focus is on the specific question of how organizations combine different governance mechanisms to balance autonomy and control in the management (steering) of CoPs. This paper is based on a study of 16 CoPs in nine multinational organizations.
