Experimental Validation of Visualization Benefits for Knowledge Sharing in Management Teams

Martin J. Eppler, S. Bresciani, A. Comi, A. Schmeil, K. Platts, J. Mengis & A. Blackwell

versione breve In this research project, we aim to provide scientifically validated evidence that real-time, interactive visualization (graphic representations of information) can increase the productivity of knowledge sharing in management teams.

Through a series of controlled experiments we aim to show that real-time knowledge visualization leads to more productive and sustainable knowledge sharing, idea generation and deliberation in management teams in different collaboration situations, such as:

- in sharing experiences regarding strategy implementation,
- in jointly assessing the potential and innovation synergies of a strategic alliance,
- in communicating a business strategy to peers,
- in conducting a project planning meeting,

These experiments are conducted using real-life managers as well as students. In a later stage of the project, the experiments are replicated in different cultural settings to isolate the impact of cultural differences on the effectiveness of visualization for communication support in management meetings.

Different visualization conditions are also compared in the experiment series and compared to purely text-based communication support. These visualization formats are paper-based, software-based, and virtual-environment-based.
