Knowledge Transfer Between Projects - Lessons from Florence Duomo
(1 Technical PDU)
This presentation exemplifies how knowledge was transferred and transformed from one project to another with great success, and demonstrates the great value in doing this. It narrates the construction project of the Florence Duomo by Fillipo Brunelleschi in the fifteenth century. This was the most significant dome project in Europe in 1300 years, and possibly the most significant, innovative and complex project of the Renaissance era. In order to achieve what seemed technically impossible at the time, Brunelleschi researched and adapted the construction and project management practices of the Pantheon in Rome in the second century. Best practices advocate that lessons learned are collected through a project and then formalized at the end to be reused in future projects. Yet this is rarely done today with time pressures, perceived low value, a lack of directive or formal processes, or individuals moving on to the next assignment, and other constraints. The presentation outlines how to start to resolve this within organizations.
