About the Survey
Knowledge Architecture created KA Connect in 2010 because we noticed a gap in the AEC industry—no one was looking at knowledge management in a holistic way.
Five years later, with five KA Connect conferences exploring the role of knowledge management in the AEC industry under our belts, and over 2,000 individuals in the KA Connect LinkedIn Group Community, we’ve noticed another gap. We believe a knowledge management benchmarking tool for the industry is the pivotal next step in advancing the practice of knowledge management in the AEC industry.
This is why we decided to build the AEC Knowledge Management Survey and formally gather industry data to create this benchmarking tool. We’ve partnered with Practice Lab, an independent research firm, to conduct the survey and provide you with an interactive report of the findings.
The statistics from the survey will help AEC firms evaluate their use of knowledge management in comparison to peer firms and competitors, as well as implement new strategies for managing knowledge.
The survey will cover the following areas:
- Strategic Priorities for Knowledge Management
- Core Knowledge Management Processes
- Supporting Activities for Knowledge Management
- Knowledge Management Leadership
- Successes, Challenges, and the Year Ahead
You’ll be able to review your results in two ways:
- Personal Summary and Detail: See your responses with KM performance gaps highlighted.
- Benchmarking Summary: See side-by-side highlights of your responses and what others in the AEC industry said.
The deadline for participating is Friday, April 3, 2015.
Who Should Participate?
Architecture, engineering, planning, or environmental consulting firms; construction contractors and construction managers; speciality AEC contractors and consultants.
The survey should be completed by the individual with the highest responsibility for knowledge management issues or any firm leader who can accurately answer questions about the firm’s KM priorities, processes, and people.
You do not need to be a Knowledge Architecture client or KA Connect attendee to participate.
The inaugural AEC Knowledge Management Survey is now open.
