1. KM Approach

1.1. Phase I

1.1.1. 2001: Decision to improve KM Reduce Inefficiency within and across divisions Set of tools were used to facilitate the KM activities; email, discussion forum, shared drives, etc Result: Very few from three divisions changed their work practice to include KM activities

1.1.2. 2004: Decision to adopt a formal approach to KM Shared drives as the main electronic repository Problem: Shareddrive could not deal with version control, and redudancy Result: Project teams preferred not to use shared drives. Resulting the need to acquire a more effective repository that would integrate knowledge from various sources

1.2. Phase II

1.2.1. 2005-2006: SharePoint SharePoint : browser based collaboration and document-management platform to support KM activities and is highly customizable Problem Default structure, received too many complains due to it being too general and was interpreted differently by various users The use of SharePoint as high-level audit tool, rather than sharing tool. Due to restrictions that some files can only be accessed by the member of that project Result Some project teams chose not to use SharePoint, the lack of clear standards reinforcing the use and adoption of SharePoint contributed to general perception that executive team has to reassess their need before deciding on a specific technology

1.3. Phase III

1.3.1. SharePointProject SharePointProject: multi-user networking system, provides details about the projects and automatically integrate data and information from other sources. Problem SharePointProject requires collaboration from every TPA employee in order to provide an integrated view of a project Technical problems due to aging servers that need to be replaced Many project managers were too busy and could not attend the training sessions Result By the end of 2007 they implemented the platform throughout three divisions. Migrating and converting all of the existing project data to SharePointProject
