Designing Buildings Wiki, the construction industry knowledge base, has undertaken the first ever comprehensive mapping of construction industry knowledge. The results have been published in a major new report.
The key findings:
The industry is lacking the strategic leadership needed to coordinate the creation and dissemination of knowledge;
The emergence of the internet has fundamentally changed the way practitioners access knowledge, but the industry has not kept up;
Knowledge that is difficult to understand, buried in long documents or locked behind pay walls will not be used – even if it is critically important;
Practitioners need accessible, practical, easy-to-use guidance to help them carry out everyday activities.
