Abstract

In the context of thesis writing in management education, the purpose is to present community of practice (CoP), as a form of knowledge management network (KMN), and to understand its consequences. Of the 288 graduate students in management education, innoversity is influenced by CoP and effort continuance. Effort continuance is the full mediator between self-determination and innoversity. CoP can be enhanced directly by self-efficacy but does not differ regarding gender and degree. The involvement of CoP does not cause differential effect on effort continuance. Self-efficacy is the full mediator between self-determination and community of practice. Goal setting leads to the extent of self-determination. In short, perception of CoP and effort continuance can lead to cultivation of innoversity. The practical contributions achieves to validate an integrated theoretical model of the interest, and to explore the potential application of CoP, as a form of KMN, in different subject domains.
