The concept of Knowledge Management is now familiar to the construction industry and
various attempts are being made for the effective management of knowledge in the industry.
This paper addresses the importance of people factor and tacit knowledge in construction and
examines the current focus of knowledge management initiatives to find out the alignment with
the industry requirements. Labour and knowledge intensive nature of industry is revealed with
challenging aspects of construction performance. Dominant hard model of human resource
management is uncovered and finally the mismatch between the current focus and industry KM
requirements is unearthed
