Abstract

In recent years the fulfillment of time-limited tasks within the context of so-called virtual projects has become increasingly significant. However, with regard to the influence of mobility and control of knowledge management processes, virtual projects indicate specific problems, and also opportunities for developing and using project knowledge and qualitative higher-value task fulfillment. Theoretically derived and empirically ascertained problem areas within knowledge management in virtual projects are, for example, inadequate transparency regarding knowledge available in the project, as well as the relatively high fluctuation of staff possessing relevant knowledge. The prototype VITEA system takes problems of this kind into account and supports the exchange of information and knowledge in virtual projects via heterogeneous media.
