Professional associations and global initiatives
Communities of practice (Wenger, 1998) are formed when people doing similar things realize they have shared interests. They recognize that there are opportunities to improve both their practices and their performance by sharing knowledge and experience. The project management professional associations as we know them today began in this way: as informal gatherings and forums for networking and exchanging ideas and information.
