These communities of practice may be formed on the basis of professional expertise and experience or through a common intended target or outcome. An example is the Future of Coaching Collaboration Group — a multi-stakeholder group comprising of many component parts of the coaching market who produce original research to further the coaching profession. Professional/knowledge forum groups tend to comprise of representatives who come together for a specific purpose or project and are often voluntary in nature. Coaching think-tanks and other communities of practice are examples which fall into this category.
