This paper aims to analyze and identify the stages of knowledge management, adopting the SECI model, in Project Management Office (PMO). Results from a case study conducted in a Brazilian company shows that the main difficulties encountered were associated with encouraging employees to share their tacit knowledge when asked to assist in project development. Organizational culture presented itself as a major factor influencing this process of knowledge sharing among the employees in the company that was studied.

Keywords: knowledge management, knowledge dissemination, SECI model, PMO, case study.
