The Knowledge Management Gap In Australian Public Transport [ITS Monash]
The development and sharing of knowledge is an essential part of any business particularly one as complex as the public transport industry. This paper suggests there are problems in the way knowledge is developed and shared within the Australian public transport industry. It shows that knowledge sharing is limited due to the lack of centralised coordination and distribution of information. It also highlights weakness with how knowledge is developed. Most knowledge development is restricted to state based, mainly government, operators and their consultants. Knowledge development and sharing is very limited for these groups who emphasise shorter term operating issues and commercial objectives. The paper shows how other Australian industries such as Austroads have a coordinated program of knowledge development and sharing. It also shows how the Australian public transport industry is lagging behind the rest of the world in this area. The implications for the Australian public transport industry are identified and a model for addressing the problem suggested.
