In the current era, technological advancements have increased the significance of accessing and evaluating knowledge. As a result, organizational knowledge is now considered a valuable intangible resource that can provide a competitive edge for knowledge based organizations. Therefore, modern companies must prioritize knowledge management, which can ensure sustainable development. However, for the sustainable development and long-term survival of any organization, effective and efficient knowledge sharing is essential. Traditional knowledge sharing is a time-consuming task that can distract employees from their work since it relies on communication between them. Indeed, due to the importance of the main activities to implement time-limited projects, knowledge management gets less priority in such projects. Because knowledge management should be considered at every level of an organization, this paper highlights the problem of knowledge management for a team working on a time-limited project. This paper tries to investigate that problem. In addition, this proposes a few solutions for the mentioned problem. This paper could be applicable to managers of know-based organizations to establish efficient knowledge management systems.
