Manage Project Knowledge

Project management is actually the delivery of value by bringing together the necessary information and then managing, and controlling it. 

The process of manage project knowledge is the process of using the knowledge gained, creating new knowledge to achieve the goals of the project, and contributing to corporate learning. There is no specific time frame during which this process is implemented. It is applied continuously throughout the project. Both in agile and predictive development approaches.

In a new project being carried out, it is recommended and necessary to use the knowledge gained from previous projects. Similarly, projects that will be done after you can learn something from yours. However, one should not think that this process only consists of documentation of the lessons learned repository or lessons learned register.

The flow of information is the point that should be focused on in the process of managing knowledge. In fact, the most important part of this process is to create an environment where people trust each other and share the knowledge they have by learning from each other, therefore, creating new information.

The main benefit of the Project Knowledge Management process is to use the knowledge that your organization has previously obtained and to create project outputs or make improvements. The knowledge gained within the scope of the project is used in other operations of your organization.
