CAIRO BOOKS's Description
An organisation’s competitive advantage lies in the knowledge of its employees
and the organisation’s 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.
