Project work in
today’s organisations primarily takes place through the engagement of
knowledge-based communities of practice as well as the use of embedded
communication technologies, such as web-based social media. This has
been highlighted as one of the ways in which health innovation research
knowledge can be managed and transferred (Towards knowledge management
based on harnessing collective intelligence on the web, Berlin, 350–357,
2006; Collective intelligence in healthcare, http://​www.​oakleigh.​co.​uk/​page/​1428/​White-Papers/​Whitepaper-Articles/​Collective-Intelligence-in-Healthcare,
2013). Organisations are witnessing a re-shaping of their processes in
terms of diminished face-to-face interactions. This chapter reviews ways
in which the use of communication technologies, social media and
virtual teams assist project-based work in the transfer of health
innovation knowledge. The focus is on experiential learning from
collaboration from the European COST Project IS 0907.
