  19. 19. 1. Introduction<br /> This study pretends to identify the interrelationships of the topics project management and sustainability of organizations, with the lens of analysis to knowledge management (KM).<br />
  20. 20. 2. Objective<br />Was to answer the guiding question: Is there inter-relationship between project management and organizational sustainability from the viewpoint of knowledge management? <br />From there, began a systematic search in the chosen database.<br />
  21. 21. 3. Method<br />How-to?<br />SystematicReviewReview evidence of one clearly formulated question using explicit and systematic methods to identify, select and critically previous relevant research, extracting and analyzing data studies from these revision.<br />(NHS Centre for ReviewsandDissemination. Undertaking  Systematic  Reviews  of  Research  on  EffectivenessUniversityof New York, 2001)<br />
  22. 22. 3. Method<br />Advantages of Systematic Review<br /><ul><li>Reduces bias (s) of author (s);
  23. 23. It is replicable;
  24. 24. Can be updated;

Development<br />
  32. 32. 4. Development<br />To understand the complexity related to sustainability the WBCSD (World Business Council for Sustainable Development), defined the concept of sustainable development in the organizational world by how to achieve balance between the three dimensions (Triple Bottom Line) that drive organizational sustainability, which are: the economic, the environmental and social [7].<br />
  33. 33. Thus, sustainability is a concept still under construction, in view of their magnitude and complexity of the issue because it involves also the most diverse interests of different social groups, rather than a global consciousness of mankind, as a component of an ecosystem global threat.<br />4. Development<br />
  34. 34. Sustainability can be improved when the dimensions of economic, environmental and social, when it forge the knowledge base in a sustainable way, been managed based on knowledge management [20] [22].<br />4. Development<br />
  35. 35. In this manner, considering the turbulent environment of today, according Carrion et al. [9], organizations are looking to improve their processes and products, from knowledge. Knowledge, according to Davenport & Prusak and Terra [10, 11], is the most valuable asset that an organization may have. For Syed [12], knowledge is an unlimited resource to achieve the organizations evaluates, organize and implement.<br />4. Development<br />
  36. 36. Knowledge Management basedon Best Practicesof Project Management: The Foundation for Sustainability<br />Corroborating with this idea of the necessity of knowledge managementtogether with project management to leverage sustainability, Bartezzaghi, Corso and Verganti [29] reported that innovative processes and products become more frequent and strategically relevant, competitiveness in the long term forces companies to exploit synergies and learning between projects. In fact, dominate the whole process of creation, dissemination and application of knowledge is the basis for the creation and continuous improvement of capacity for product development.<br />Learning through sequences of unique innovations, however, is neither simple nor natural, and requires appropriate mechanisms for clearance. Being a key point for the union of KM with PM.<br />4. Development<br />
  37. 37. 5. Results<br />Resulting in 70 publications: <br />of<br />sustainability, knowledge<br />and<br />project management.<br />Figure 1 – Number of publications x concentration area.<br />Fonte: Scopus database.<br />

  39. 39. 6. Concluding Remarks<br /><ul><li>The results of the systematic review indicate that KM and PM with a focus on organizational sustainability provides sustainable competitive advantages, both in the economic and socio-environmental.
  40. 40. Still, the theoretical point that the PM and organizational sustainability in the view of KM is a fundamental condition for the continuous improvement are generated in a systematic way, leading to innovation and greater competitiveness.</li></li></ul><li>6. Concluding Remarks<br />Further analysis is suggested emphasizing practical issues concerning the relationship of sustainability to the processes of the PM with the support of KM processes. This new work would complement the information provided in this research with the information derived from practical case studies.<br />
