The repository and sharing of knowledge from existing human resources to their successors must be managed effectively to ensure business continuity and successful project execution. This article explains the knowledge repository and sharing capability with knowledge based view to project teams and highlights best practices that enable efficient project management. The purpose of this paper is to present that capabilities of knowledge management (KM) are identified and classified for project management team. The importance of knowledge sharing and repository has been emphasized in the knowledge body of project management, with the recognition that knowledge is often tacit and embedded within project teams. These enablers are utilized to affect knowledge management capabilities and to affect team work performance with a knowledge-based view. An empirical survey was conducted for project team members who use knowledge management system as knowledge management tool. The knowledge-based view is a research framework with which to interpret research findings. The results of the research suggest two main aspects: (1) The knowledge-based enablers (i.e., information technology, support, culture, and reward) have positive effect on knowledge sharing and repository. (2) The knowledge management capabilities (i.e., sharing and repository) have positive effect on project work performance. The results provide future researchers with useful means to assess the project performance in knowledge sharing and repository capability and to realize the benefits of a knowledge-based economy in project team.
