    Session 4 


    The Session: Technical Writers on Top – Connecting Silos with CoP
    Community of Practice (CoP) is an amalgamation of a Community (Who cares about it), Domain (What we care about), and Practice (What we do together about it). A successful CoP (w.r.t. to technical writing domain) aims for being an expert, valuable, and driven team that is recognized for offering effective and high-quality, unified content solutions.
    CoP welcomes diversity of thought where we get to know each other with some fun activities and games and at the same time acknowledge hard work and jobs well done. In most organizations, the technical writing/content development department is not as recognized as are other departments and treated as an unimportant part of a company.
    CoP bridges this gap and with continuous effort ensures technical writing/content development departments are valued and known across the company.
