Knowledge transfer & sharing between projects - best practices in project management

Lessons from the Florence Duomo Project

There are several planned and available presentations that provide a different slant on the topic and are intended for different audiences.

Knowledge Transfer & Sharing

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.

Audience: Project Managers, Program Managers, Business Managers

Learning Objectives

The presentation:

  • Reinterprets a major historical project for a modern project management audience, by examining in detail how Brunelleschi took very difficult problems facing the project and developed innovative solutions by uncovering, transferring and adapting knowledge.
  • Demonstrates how Brunelleschi was able to make significant advances with existing technology by incorporating process innovation based on the knowledge transfer.
  • Allows us in turn to learn about both the transfer and sharing of knowledge both of which are essential to contemporary project management.
  • States how knowledge is arguably of more contemporary significance than the advances in the technology itself.

Full of intriguing details, the presentation helps you to work out strategies for sharing and transferring knowledge.
