To deliver a project for a client, a project manager will be required to adapt to change from time to time by finding, retrieving and processing knowledge. It is of value to an organisation to facilitate this process of knowledge exchange to ensure that they in turn can deliver on their agreed strategy. This paper will focus on knowledge transfer, firstly by retrieving the knowledge context through the lens of the accepted theories of knowledge management.This will include an examination into how knowledge is created. This creation process will require a review into the motivation and learning styles which will assist in developing a deeper understanding of how a project manager transfers knowledge. To determine if the environment has an impact on the capacity of the project manger to transfer knowledge, a review will be undertaken into the physical and virtual spaces where projects are managed. Through an examination of these environments, indicators can be identified that may enhance or detract from the ability of the project manager to transfer knowledge. An understanding of these surroundings will provide a framework of the optimum environment for a project manager to transfer knowledge.
