Abstract

Knowledge has become a valuable resource connected with the organization’s ability to innovate and to gain a sustainable competitive advantage. Knowledge exists within the individual and, through the adequate methods can be transferred within the organization. But transferring knowledge within the organization or in project environments is a difficult task, confronted with the central barrier of the willingness of people to share and integrate their knowledge. Thus, the main purpose of the paper is to present the methods that could be applied to project environments in order to increase the processes of knowledge sharing and expand the collective knowledge base. Research on learning has shown that people learn better and retain knowledge longer when their brains are actively engaged, therefore the managers must focus their attention on those methods that engage the team members and make them realize their importance within the team.
