    Abstract

    This paper explores professionalisation concepts and diffusion of research within the project management knowledge community (PMKC) with a focus on the professional identity of project managers. The PMKC consists of academics; consultants; teaching institutions; professional organisations; publishers; and project managers in roles as producers, consumers, diffusers, and brokers of project management knowledge. Exploring professional identity perspectives can contribute to contemporary knowledge beyond the use of isomorphic conventional traits and institutionalised processes.
