Product development projects are expected to deliver results according to project goals. However, long-term success (over product generations) is diminishing when little time is given for knowledge capture and reuse. Effects of inefficient knowledge management (KM) become apparent when valuable knowledge is lost over time. Core barriers that decrease efficiency in KM, at the case companies, are mapped into a knowledge life cycle model, based on an individual’s perspective. To improve KM, instant knowledge work (acquisition, creation, refinement, sharing) is presented as a mind-set and a tool.
