Biography

Anna Wiewiora is a Lecturer in School of Management, currently teaching two subjects of: Leading Organisations (MGB200) and Working in Business (BSB124).

Anna uses applied research to solve practical problems with the current focus on improving organisational learning and knowledge development processes in project-based organisations.

Prior to joining QUT, Anna was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Southern Cross University working on a large scale CRC project supported by the Collaborative Research Centre for Integrated Engineering Asset Management (CIEAM) and completed this appointment in August 2013.

Anna’s PhD thesis was recognised and awarded the University Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award for 2012, for its outstanding contribution to the discipline and high quality research design. The findings drawn from her research provide a number of contributions to the body of knowledge and practice, including: (1) a more comprehensive and holistic view of inter-project knowledge sharing, (2) a new theory on interrelations between the concepts of organisational culture, the three dimensions of trustworthiness, and a range of knowledge sharing mechanisms in inter-project knowledge sharing, and (3) a number of practical recommendations for project-based organisations to improve their knowledge sharing practices. As a part of the CRC project,

Anna developed Integrated Strategic Asset Management for Experts (ISAM for Xperts), which represents research on best practice and benchmarks for Integrated Strategic Asset Management and addresses real challenges faced by governments and organisations engaged in the delivery of large infrastructure projects while providing a clear action plan that guides practitioners on achieving effective asset management outcomes.

Anna is actively engaged in cross-disciplinary international collaboration with a number of excellent researchers in project management.
