Description Knowledge is a key asset of companies; therefore knowledge sharing is vitally important. Knowledge sharing is no less important for project-oriented organizations: project team members often come from different departments and knowledge sharing enables them to work more efficiently. Although there is no doubt about the importance of knowledge sharing mechanisms (KSMs) and a number of tools and techniques for project knowledge sharing are available, to the best of our knowledge there is little information on the real use of such tools and factors affecting them. Therefore, the main goal of this paper is to empirically examine KSMs in projects, and through the exploratory analysis, to identify possible factors associated with KSMs as well as to outline the key areas where future research might help to improve knowledge sharing in projects. The results of this study shall contribute to better understanding knowledge sharing mechanisms and their functioning in project-oriented companies.
