Knowledge and information transfer have become important ingredients for an organisation's competitive advantage. Knowledge management has emerged as an overarching strategy to enhance knowledge creation, information transfer, utilisation, and reticulation in order to generate innovation and improve organisational performance.

These are networks of individuals with a common, shared purpose grouped together to facilitate knowledge building, idea creation and information exchange. The experience establishing Communities of Practice at Rabobank Australia and New Zealand is examined.
