Abstract [en]

Projects are per definition unique. However, there are several elements, such as solutions, methods, tools, etc. that are common to projects. In a time sensitive work environment, like project settings, it is highly beneficial to focus on making use of existing knowledge and solutions, and avoid ?reinventing the wheel?. This existing knowledge can be both explicit and tacit knowledge. Explicit refers to written knowledge, and tacit refers to experience and unwritten knowledge. Experience like explicit knowledge can be transferred among people as well. Hence, experience transfer gains importance in project organizations. There are many ways to transfer experience in organizations. Development in information technology has led to several tools and systems that promote experience transfer. So, this master thesis will look at one such system that is used by an organization called Gassco. Gassco, as an operator, is responsible for safe and efficient gas transport from the Norwegian continental shelf and will be leading gas transporter in Europe. In this regards, this thesis aims to understand, find problems, suggest solutions for solving problems, and develop and improve the experience transfer systems in this company. Key words: knowledge management, knowledge transfer and sharing, experience transfer, individuals and organizational learning, information technology based system, PIMS R3 (project information management system), and Experience Transfer system
