Schedule delays and cost overruns are common events in construction. The construction industry predominantly suffers from deficient project knowledge management. This paper seeks to develop a conceptual framework to enhance project delivery performances in construction projects adopting project learning approach. The existing patterns, themes and issues correlated with overruns causation and knowledge management in the construction industry are studied to appraise the development of the conceptual framework. It is propagated that if project performance in construction projects is to improve, then experiential learning and personal constructs of project personnel will form an integral part of reusable project knowledge. Continuous project learning ultimately improve competency in project management. Collaborative working environment enriches the quality and quantity of learning in construction settings. Project learning prevents the wastage of time and resources in the reinvention of the same knowledge, minimise rework, inhibit the reoccurrence of past mistakes and repeat project success. The conceptualised project learning framework provides a theoretically corroborated explanation of project performance, underpinned by experiential learning theory and personal construct theory and exploitation of reusable project knowledge. © 2019 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
