    Bruce: I fear the article conflates Agile (as in the methodology) with agile (as in the adjective). The masters thesis references makes no mention at all of Agile. Understanding CoPs, as opposed to product or service lines, they certainly do enhance co-operation, knowledge sharing and innovation. And the key to their existence – and sustenance – is a clear demarcation of their domain. They operate best at the crossroads of organizational structure and knowledge taxonomy, allowing people in unrelated structural entities to participate in the ‘development’ of specific K domains. I’m not at all sure if the Agile methodology fits the spirit and purpose of CoPs, and visa versa.
