Abstract—Tacit knowledge management requires knowledge owners’ participation because of the taciturnity of tacit knowledge and its inseparability from its owners. Project team, as an effective form, provides its members the opportunity and surroundings of sharing tacit knowledge among each other. In a project team, the affinity of members is more important to knowledge management. Interpersonal affinity can be comprehended that within an effective institution, its members can spatially and psychologically work together out of the common interests and benefits, in which they hope to offer an effective solution and make cooperation. Based on affinity, this article constructed the frame of tacit knowledge management in project team. Besides, it also separately discusses the tacit knowledge management in the three levels in project team: member level, team level and corporation level.
