Communities of Practice

Based on our experience, all quarrymen (from the owner to the masters, from handling machine operators toordinary cutters) tend tosetthe local team around the concept of community by sharing the flow of knowledge.

Experiences in Africa, Europe and America

If it goes along well, the quarrymen’s team can beturned into a Community of Practice, in organisational terms.

Such approach is essential for their awareness, education, information and training.

If the local quarrying community, especially in a developing country, is linked to an international network of similar communities, creative and identity-basedcommunities of practice may be set up andjoin forcesto have areal impact on their regions.

TheCreative Empowerment Community (CEC) network that Studio Pandolfi suggests to any new regionleads to share knowledge and good practicesin the development of a quarry.
