In the course of a post graduate program about “Applied Knowledge Management” I have conducted an explorative, qualitative study about the Open S-BPM Community. The aim of the study was to gain first information about the expectations, feelings, needs, and motivations of possible community members. Overall I interviewed 18 persons related to our community.
Afterwards I located the results within the three knowledge management methods or approaches “Communities of Practice”, “Knowledge Creation” and “Enabling Knowledge Creation” in order to infer ideas to foster knowledge creation and knowledge sharing within the S-BPM community.
