ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY AND KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER

This paper reports on a specific project, employing new technological capabilities to better transfer expert knowledge. The specific project considered for the paper is the World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH), a Multi Organization Enterprise promoting the use of soy and soy products in humanitarian and development aid around the world. VisIT, which stands for Visualization of Information Technology, is a potentially powerful organizational tool. It is compared against the traditional technology in the WISHH setting. An evaluation experiment was conducted with undergraduate students enrolled in agriculture and consumer economics and management courses in January and February 2002. The paper provides the summary results of the effectiveness of the use of that technology to transfer expert knowledge.
