Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to propose a method for the transfer of knowledge and skills in project management (PM) based on techniques in knowledge management (KM). Design/methodology/approach: The literature contains studies on methods to extract experiential knowledge in PM, but few studies exist that focus on methods to convert extracted knowledge into practical knowledge and transfer it to learners. This research proposes a model of PM skills transfer management, which consists of a PM knowledge extraction phase, PM knowledge recognition phase, practical knowledge transfer phase, and practical knowledge evaluation phase, and examines the model's effectiveness. Findings: Through multi-agent simulation (MAS), expert communities for knowledge extraction can be vitalized. A PM skills transfer management maturity model (PMST3M) was proposed that is capable of evaluating PM skills transfer management. Research limitations/implications: The present work could have considered KSM in-depth with a view to adding value to the virtualization of community of PM experts. Originality/value: The paper presents a detailed critique of a knowledge-management-based process of transferring PM skills. (Contains 1 table, 7 figures and 3 online references.)
