Published by Wiley
An organisation’s competitive advantage lies in the knowledgeof its employees and the organisation’s ability to harnessthat knowledge to meet business objectives. Knowledge management isrecognised in the construction industry as a potential tool forproviding organisational benefits, but for a number of reasons– particularly the project based nature of construction,where teams are transient, multidisciplinary and often fromdifferent organisations – implementation has been onlymarginally successful.

Capture and Reuse of Project Knowledge in Construction describesa methodology for the 'live' capture of reusable project knowledgethat reflects both the organisational and human dimensions ofknowledge capture and reuse, as well as exploiting the benefits oftechnology. This methodology was developed in response to theshortcomings of current practices in managing project knowledge,the benefits offered by capturing and sharing knowledge immediatelyafter it is generated, and the organisational benefit of reusingknowledge within a project based environment.
