Using Enterprise 2.0 tools to facilitate knowledge transfer in complex engineering environments

Murphy, Glen D. & Salomone, Sonia (2010) Using Enterprise 2.0 tools to facilitate knowledge transfer in complex engineering environments. [Working Paper] (Unpublished)


An essential challenge for organizations wishing to overcome informational silos is to implement mechanisms that facilitate, encourage and sustain interactions between otherwise disconnected groups. Using three case examples, this paper explores how Enterprise 2.0 technologies achieve such goals, allowing for the transfer of knowledge by tapping into the tacit and explicit knowledge of disparate groups in complex engineering organizations. The paper is intended to be a timely introduction to the benefits and issues associated with the use of Enterprise 2.0 technologies with the aim of achieving the positive outcomes associated with knowledge management

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
