In software development there are many ways to transfer the knowledge about how to build a product to the people who do the actual building.? Production can be severely hampered, however, if that knowledge is being produced more rapidly than it can be consumed.? This is the knowledge transfer bottleneck.
In this highly interactive workshop we will explore three different methods for knowledge transfer (documentation, reverse engineering and mentoring) by employing them to construct a fleet of aircraft of unusual design. We’ll compare and contrast the results, draw analogies between manufacturing and software development, and learn how to remove the bottleneck.
Pre-dinner Guided Networking will be facilitated by one of TMCâ??s chapter officers.? Attendees are encouraged to think about the nightâ??s theme â?? the knowledge transfer roadblock.? Weâ??ll discuss examples from attendees experiences.? In the process weâ??ll get to find out what fellow meeting attendees are doing in their work.
