Communities of practice are a possible a mechanism for improving knowledge sharing among project managers both within and between organizations. Based on social capital theory and intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, we theorize a model of participation intensity by project managers in communities of practice. Specifically our research model expands on the various motivational drivers and perceived outcomes of project manager participation in communities of practice.
