This study develops scales to assess how social interaction climate, perceived management commitment to knowledge sharing, and the presence of technology that can facilitate knowledge sharing, are correlated with knowledge sharing in organizations. Of theses measures, knowledge sharing was significantly predicted by social interaction climate, and perceived management commitment to knowledge sharing. Technology was not a significant predictor. This study also used a series of vignettes to determine situational variables in knowledge sharing exchanges. Trust, reward structures, and organizational status differentials were all significant predictors of knowledge sharing in organizations.Download thesis View all resources
