This document focuses on the Grow discipline within the K2 COE. The purpose of the Grow discipline is to provide guidance around common practices that promote the increased usage of the K2 platform within an organization. Additionally as the usage of the K2 platform expands across teams it is important to plan for the interaction and sharing of knowledge across these groups.


In order to expand the usage of the K2 platform, and as a result increase the value of the internal K2 development teams, it is key to task someone with the responsibility to be the point person on evangelizing the K2 platform from both a business value and technical functionality perspective. This resource should be well connected within disparate business and technology teams within an organization and be in frequent communication with any unit that is looking for business process applications.

Communications and Feedback

It is important that there be well understood practices around sharing of all the K2 implementation’s knowledge within an organization. This is commonly managed by an individual (or set of individuals) that are tasked with organizing recurring events such as lunch and learns, internal technical forums, meet ups, etc. The focus should be sharing of knowledge of implementation experiences across teams as well as a means of sharing new K2 platform functionality. This section provides suggestions of common practices to encourage this knowledge share around the K2 platform.
