Description / Abstract:

An organisations competitive advantage lies in the knowledge of its employees and the organisations ability to harness that knowledge to meet business objectives. Knowledge management is recognised in the construction industry as a potential tool for providing organisational benefits, but for a number of reasons particularly the project based nature of construction, where teams are transient, multidisciplinary and often from different organisations implementation has been only marginally successful. Capture and Reuse of Project Knowledge in Construction describes a methodology for the 'live' capture of reusable project knowledge that reflects both the organisational and human dimensions of knowledge capture and reuse, as well as exploiting the benefits of technology. This methodology was developed in response to the shortcomings of current practices in managing project knowledge, the benefits offered by capturing and sharing knowledge immediately after it is generated, and the organisational benefit of reusing knowledge within a project based environment. Written for all practitioners in project-based industries who have struggled with the capture and reuse of knowledge on their projects, it will also be of interest to students and researchers in construction management and allied disciplines.
