Best Practices Websites
There are many specialized best practices websites that catalogue best practices for specific types of organizations or specific work area of activity.
One example of a best practices website with a specific type of organization focus is the website, Library Success: A Best Practices Wiki, that has compiled best practices for libraries. An example of a best practices website that has a specific work area focus is the, Project Management Hut, that has a compilation of best practices related to project management.
Readers should note that the Best Practices Wiki simply catalogues and provides this information, does not evaluate these sites, promote these sites or comment on their missions. Some sites are pure non-profit organizations. Some are non-profits that sell or promote services. Some are for profits sites. Some are governmental sponsored sites.
Some websites listed here have as a primary focus best practices. Others have best practices as one of many functions of their websites.
