  1. John, my local ASTD chapter is putting together a program on Centers of Excellence. We looked for a good definition of a CoE and found your definition:

    “A team of people that promote collaboration and using best practices around a specific focus area to drive business results.”

    We also liked your examples and 5 basic needs.

    Any objection if we use your definition with an upcoming presentation along with a few of your examples? [with full attribution and link to your blog]. Strictly a non-profit event for 25 members.

    Thanks very much,

    Larry Gourley
