Abstract: This report presents the findings of a six month research project – ‘Lost in Transition’. The research was carried out by a multidisciplinary team at Loughborough University and was aimed at identifying knowledge management issues that can lead to loss of knowledge. Construction projects go through series of phases during which several activities are performed by multiple stakeholders. This requires information and knowledge supplementary to the competences of project teams. This involves knowledge management (KM) processes to adequately capture, document, store, share, use, refine and reuse the knowledge from one phase to another and from project to project. However, due to certain KM issues, knowledge is lost as the project progresses from phase to phase. Several factors contribute to this phenomenon thus the investigation of this research.
Description: This report is an output of a six-month research project funded by the EPSRC “Bridging the Gaps: Knowledge Management – A Systems Problem” at Loughborough University.
