The field of project management experiences conceptual, technological, and decision issues when projects are created, implemented, and executed without the needed strategic connection. It is important to improve the connection between knowledge management and project management practices.
The Handbook of Research on Effective Project Management through the Integration of Knowledge and Innovation bridges the gap between knowledge management and project management practices by providing both classical and modern views on their relationship. Discussing principles, practices, methods, and real case studies, this book describes the importance of aligning projects with a knowledge-based strategic plan to the benefit of practitioners, professionals, scholars, and researchers in the fields of management and information science.

Resumo do capítulo:
This chapter intends to address the needs and the involvement to support communities of innovation in the process of the generation of new ideas. The relevance of this document focuses on information systems and socio-semantics collaborative networks. The support of collaboration is not a new need to human activities in business. Nevertheless, it has major importance due the temporal limitations of the innovative context. In fact, having an idea is not enough. It is necessary to put it on the ground before the competitors. The authors conclude that technology can facilitate the generation of new ideas, benefit business collaboration, and help increase the rate and efficiency in the generation of new ideas, while reducing the time spent in the negotiation of consensus and decreasing the implicit cost in the overall process. It is expected to contribute to the (re)utilization of the innovation memory and to preserve the organizational knowledge.
