Abstract [en]

The project is a very common form of work in regional growth. Because the business is so oriented project is increased knowledge and a well-functioning project very anxious. Regardless of the role of the region in the external and internal projects, it is in the interest of the organization to benefit from the lessons and experiences in order to develop the internal work and regional roles in the project.

The study aims to describe the types of knowledge generated, as well as the knowledge transfer that takes place in the regional projects. The descriptions can be used to disseminate knowledge about the processes used and which are used to a lesser extent, and what affects it. Overall questions for this study are:

• What kinds of knowledge generate projects of regional growth?

• How is the knowledge of projects in regional growth?

The study is based on 12 interviews in three regions, Örebro, Östergötland och Värmland. Four development managers, a department manager, five strategists and two project managers were interviewed.

There are factors that affect the types of knowledge that are created and how the knowledge is transferred. 

It is the knowledge and skills of the project manager, tacit knowledge and unclear requirements and expectations, organizations' role and function of learning and achievements and challenges related to line operations. The knowledge transfer is the lack of documentation on the results of the project, focusing on target figures more than how to lead and manage projects, structure and processes in organizations. The project manager's role, responsibilities, mandates and powers in relation to other roles and working methods in line organization is perceived as difficult, hierarchical and unclear, and it affects the transfer of knowledge. A major challenge is that the regions must often respond to external financiers' needs and requirements to receive funding. It could involve requiring reporting, financing, models and plans.

The conclusion is that the personal knowledge more prominent than others, but all knowledge types involved in different contexts depending on the region's role and function of internal and external projects. Knowledge transfer consists primarily of informal meetings to converse, tell and inform about the project lessons and experiences. Structured transmission occurs primarily through regional reports and plans of various kinds to make it available.
