Knowledge sharing can occur at the project team, program, and portfolio levels of an organization’s project management approach. Of the knowledge that project teams need to capture, a great deal will be relevant only to the team itself—or perhaps to a handful of peer teams performing similar work. However, a subset will need to be circulated to a broader audience or institutionalized in processes, procedures, tools, or other official guidance.
This article from APQC’s study Managing Project Knowledge examines how strong project management programs drive the right knowledge up to the appropriate channels in an organization so that key insights and lessons learned rise to the top. APQC found that curation is needed to elevate critical knowledge, lessons, and improvements to the program level.
