Abstract

The importance of project management is recognised within the UK construction industry. Various project management organisations promote and promulgate the use of their practice standards. The concepts and definitions of projects and project management, the “iron triangle” and making projects “critical” are evaluated. This literature review assesses project-based organisations and embedding new project management knowledge. The concept of projects as learning tools and the emergence of the project management office are considered. The different views on the issues that may arise from standardised project management practice are contemplated. The advantages and challenges of the codifying professional services are highlighted. The value of this research is to provide a greater understanding of the potential barriers that practitioners may encounter in knowledge transfer and learning from projects. The significant finding from the literature review is that there are challenges for practitioners in transferring knowledge, tacit or otherwise, and ironically this seems to be compounded by the characteristics of project-based working in project-based organisations. The outcome of this literature review will influence the ongoing professional doctorate research i.e. the extent that chartered project management surveying practices and clients avail themselves of professional project management practice standards.
