About this product
- DescriptionIn today's kwledge-driven ecomy, the ability to share insight and kw-how is essential for driving invation and growth. In this groundbreaking volume, scholars from around the world demonstrate how communication and information techlogies are enabling dynamic project design and management practices that challenge traditional concepts of time, space and behavior. Showcasing experiments in architecture, engineering, and construction design-employing techlogical infrastructures that link people and their ideas across physical, intellectual, and cultural boundaries-the authors consider such issues as the links between competence and invation and between individual and collective kwledge. At the heart of their analysis is the realization that techlogical invation is chiefly a social activity. The implications are profound for the practical management of complex design projects, experiments in distance learning and virtual teams, and emerging theoretical concepts of collaborative learning and invation.
