Abstract

ABSTRACT
This research aims to develop understanding of why project lessons are not more effectively learned from experience, particularly in large government sponsored information systems projects. A synthesis of the related literature assists in the development of a conceptual model which identifies key factors which can restrict or facilitate the management of project knowledge. A survey of senior project management professionals, together with 16 in-depth, semi structured interviews are used to refine and validate the model. Future areas of research are suggested. The contribution of this research aims to inform both academic and practitioner audiences.
