Research Seminar: Critical Knowledge Sharing Skills of Project Managers in the Chinese Construction Industry

Information School PhD student Shuyang Li will present a research seminar on Tuesday 24 February on 'Critical Knowledge Sharing Skills of Project Managers in the Chinese Construction Industry: A Case Study'.

Appropriate knowledge sharing is key for modern organisations to retain competitive advantage. In the construction industry, successful delivery of a project requires project managers from three individual groups (namely the investor, design institute and contracted construction company), to develop and apply appropriate knowledge sharing skills to share their knowledge effectively. In this context, this study aims to identify the knowledge sharing skills required by construction project managers in their professional practices. The outcome is expected to be a contextually-grounded, comprehensive framework of project managers’ knowledge sharing skills, enhanced with a systematic analysis of potential enablers and barriers. This research will contribute to the theoretical understanding of knowledge sharing in the specific context of the construction industry. It will also deliver practical guidance for project managers on how to develop and apply effective knowledge sharing skills in their organisations and the wider construction industry.

The seminar takes place between 14:00 and 15:00 in RC-231, Information School, Regent Court.  All are welcome to attend and there is no need to book.
