Abstract

The current research aims to investigate the relationship knowledge management (KM) practices play in the success of project knowledge management over the project life cycle i.e. at the beginning of the project, during the project and after the project. Results demonstrate that among the three phases of the project, KM practices during the project phase have a greater impact on the success of project knowledge management. This research has implications for HR and project professionals as our findings indicate that the training of project members, evaluations by external consultants, regular meetings with project leaders and reviewing lessons learnt are the most significant factors for the success of project knowledge management in the context of projects being undertaken in Pakistan.

Theory And Hypotheses

The literature review below describes the theoretical justification for the linkages shown in the proposed framework (see Figure 1). We first discuss project knowledge management and project knowledge management success. Moreover, how KM practices affects the success of project knowledge management during its different phases. Next we present the methods used for data analysis. This is followed by a discussion of the implications for research and practice, and finally recommendations are suggested based on research findings.
