The paper aims to shift the focus of project team research from how the team ‘should be’ to ‘how it could become’ in a locally grounded and complex web of relationships. The objective is to contribute to a better understanding of project team life in drifting organisational environments. The paper also suggests several implications for team learning and knowing beyond the specific project boundaries.
