Venters, Will, Cushman, Mike and Cornford, Tony (2002) Creating knowledge for sustainability: using SSM for describing knowledge environments and conceptualising technological interventions. In: The 3rd European Conference on Organizational Knowledge, Learning and Capabilities, 5-6 April 2002, Athens, Greece.
This paper proposes a sociology of knowledge approach as a basis for understanding the potential of knowledge management for a complex inter-organisational domain– the UK construction industry–with a specific aim of increasing the sustainability of the processes and products of the industry. To this end, soft systems methodology is introduced as a method of conceptualising the industry’s knowledge environment and moving towards technological interventions which enable a move towards sustainability in construction practice.
