Knowledge Sharing in Organizations: A Present and Futures Study
In recent years, organizations have faced a magnitude of changes that have impacted their day-to-day activities and the way they conduct them. Knowledge management practices are now becoming imperative for business success and for maintaining competitive advantage. This research project explores knowledge sharing in organizations and discusses leadership, methods, behaviours and attitudes, and how these factors might affect knowledge-sharing practices. We also look at the force of change that will impact knowledge management in the future. Our research findings are gleaned by utilizing strategic foresight, systems thinking, and design methodologies as well as a set of interviews with knowledge management experts across the globe. The research results in strategic recommendations designed to help leaders and managers in overcoming the barriers to knowledge sharing and enable them to create a culture of learning in their organization.
