Embedding soft knowledge capture mechanisms in scientific projects

Considerable soft knowledge gets generated when we manage scientific projects. Most of this is undocumented for want of methods and practices. Informal and formal discussions, field surveys and procedures, laboratory work and trouble shooting actitivities involve considerable tacit knowledge that goes mostly unnoticed.

A blend of methods including video, audio, mind mapping, project debriefing and story telling could carry out this complex task of documenting soft knowledge. Further, Web 2.0 gives us a suitable platform through we which we can launch these methods in the real world. Projects should embed soft knowledge capture mechanisms in their management plans so as to cut down costs and also to increase effectiveness.
