Projects are increasingly recognised to be especially suited as a learning medium, by exhibiting all the attributes in an organisation. Projects, through the process of project management, facilitate dialogue and conversations for organisational learning and provide the framework for teams and individuals to engage in a continuous loop of learning to sustain agility and organisational transformation (Lloyd & Maguire, 2002. This paper discusses the increased recognition of why “projects” are especially suited as a learning medium. This is achieved through establishing the different practices by which Project Management can facilitate knowledge capturing and enhance learning within organizations. To do that, this paper develops a relationship between what Project Management, knowledge capturing with its various forms within an organizational context and Organizational Learning each entail.
