    1111[not sure where to integrate this, TRZ 04/06/09] Communities of Practice (CoPs) are one way of looking at the 'groups' that you mention. A Community of Practice is a (spontaneous) get-together of people with similar ideas, irrelevant of their specific role, that get together to discuss whatever is opportune for that CoP. Due to the cross-boundary nature of CoPs, reaching outside organisational and geographical boundaries, the OrganiK system can be an ideal way of communicating and facilitating these CoPs. A clear example is provided by Syria where, due to the outsourced nature of the work, the employees operate in an environment hosted by a different organisation, with colleagues hired in from other organisations, but with similar tasks and roles within the context of Syria. Finding a way of facilitating the formation of these CoPs using OrganiK would be very beneficial, especially if it could recommend potential members based on shared interests etc. 
     12 LeoSauermann: this is ok to write here. I will add my 2c: CoPs are not intended for SMEs, they are intended for large corporations that have too many people that do not talk with each other. AFAIK A CoP depends(!) on a moderator that invests a lot of time into moderating the CoP, if that is missing, it will fail and just cost money and time. So: it would be good to have the results of the CoP approach (people communicating formally and knowing where to find experts) without the cost of moderation. I hope that this can be achieved through taggging.
