Abstract: The field of Knowledge Management (KM) is usually described in terms of generationsŽ. First generation KM viewed knowledge as an object and was focused on the use of IT, such as databases and portals. Second generation KM was orientated towar ds people and organisations. It emphasised tacit knowledge and communities of practice. Third generation KM recognised the importance of contextual contingencies and influences in aligning KM strategies with business strategies. Most recently, scholars ha ve started to call for a new generation KM that will ensure the fields continued interest in academia and value in practice. The proponents of the new generation KM advocate the need for convergence between KM and other disciplines. Following the current trend, the purpose of this paper is to propose a new conceptual model that merges Knowledge Management (KM) with Project Management (PM).
