Project learning is a vital prerequisite for innovation as it directly contributes to project and organizational capability development. As more organizations become project-based, there is an emergent need to understand how these organizations can overcome challenges of disruptive learning cycles caused by project temporality and employee mobility. Project learning occurs on the individual, team, and organizational level. Individual learning happens through intuiting and interpreting, learning by doing, experiencing using metaphors and cognitive maps. Team learning occurs through the integration of individual learnings, which result in shared understanding and mutual adjustment of mental models. Organizational learning manifests itself in the development of practices, policies, guidelines, and routines for the collective benefit. However, how organizations facilitate the transfer of learning between the individual, project, and organizational levels remains limited. This webinar will present key findings from the PMI sponsored research investigating mechanisms influencing learning flows between individuals, project and the parent organization. The research was guided by the overarching question: “How does project learning occur over time as an interaction across individual, project, and organizational levels?” The webinar will focus on presenting 3 notable contributions from the research that informed project management literature and practice. This research: 1. identified 10 bridging mechanisms for multilevel learning that project-based organizations can utilize to encourage learning from and to projects 2. established that 3 key actors: senior leaders, project managers and project management office play crucial role in activating project learning flows, and engaging individuals, teams and organization to participate in learning efforts. 3. developed a new leadership scale to measure leaders behavior focused on promoting project learning.
