Tittel

Knowledge Transfer – a Means to Manage the Interplay Between Changes and Time-usage in Construction Projects

Sammendrag

Projects are one‐time activities that have a definite start and end. More and more organizations are applying project as their work form. Even though having this popularity, not all projects produce desired results. There are challenges and there is room for improvement. This paper focuses on a challenge: delays / unnecessary use of time. Most projects are open systems and they operate in an open environment. Hence, changes occur often. This paper looks at the connection between changes, knowledge transfer and time delays in projects. More precisely, this paper looks at how changes can cause delays / unnecessary use of time, if there is lack of knowledge transfer in the project. In this regard, the paper presents a framework / model and discusses it by describing 4 instances / situations in a case project. The discussion also suggests relevant means to deal effectively with the interrelation between changes, unnecessary use of time and lack of knowledge transfer in projects. This paper is based on a study that is of qualitative nature, and it focuses on the construction industry. A building construction project was studied as a source of information, and interviews were conducted in this regard. The interviews were semi‐structured interviews, and they were done with various participants of the project; for instance, project manager, main contractor, construction site manager and architect. The paper is connected to a research project called "SpeedUp". This research project is funded by the Research Council of Norway. SINTEF (a research institution) and several firms in the construction industry in Norway participate in this project.
