The Evolution of Design Principles Enabling Knowledge Reuse for Projects: An Action Design Research Project

Schacht, Silvia; Morana, Stefan; Maedche, Alexander

Abstract:
Knowledge is a fuzzy phenomenon and managing it a complex endeavor. In particular, knowledge reuse possesses
the possibility to increase project performance since project teams can benefit from knowledge of former projects.
Therefore, knowledge reuse is an essential knowledge management (KM) process phase that needs to receive
special attention. Studying KM in general requires one to consider both social and technical aspects. On the one
hand, KM highly depends on individuals, their interactions with each other, organizational rules, and cultural aspects
forming KM’s social perspective. On the other hand, contemporary information technologies promise to support
organizations, teams, and individuals in managing what they know. Today, the KM research field is tremendous and
full of social and technical insights. However, independent of which aspect of KM is studied, most researchers follow
either a technology-driven approach for building innovative KM technologies or a behavioral-research approach to
observe and understand complex KM phenomena. Few papers report the design of a KM system that integrates the
social and techni ... mehr
