Action Research, Exploratory Projects and Knowledge Management Theory

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

This paper uses an example of an action research project around exploratory projects as a way of reflecting on how Knowledge Management theory can help us theorize Project Management for exploratory projects in particular. This example offers three perspectives on knowledge management as lenses for approaching exploratory projects. These lenses demonstrate different configurations of organizational learning and individual learning in project organizing for exploratory projects. These reflections are set against the backdrop of an action research project, and challenge researchers to consider how theory and the deeper ongoing interactions and reflections with practitioner co-researchers in project organizing can help us develop a more robust theoretical basis for the field of project organizing.
