Exploration of Knowledge Sharing Challenges in Value Networks: a Case Study in the Finnish...

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume5-...
Business activities are increasingly organized through networks. This article considers the value network of the Finnish grocery industry, a network where the web of relationships between two or more companies creates tangible and intangible value through the complex and dynamic exchanges. In value networks the relationships between the participants of the network tend to be more complex than the traditional make-buy-relationships, as companies create value together through different types of relationships such as deep buyer-supplier-relationships or strategic partnerships. This variance in the nature and level of collaborative relationships poses new challenges to knowledge sharing. Complementing previous research on the challenges to knowledge sharing in other network settings, this article explores the knowledge sharing challenges specific to value networks based on a qualitative case study about the value network of the Finnish grocery industry. The data consists of 32 thematic...

Knowledge Sharing in Academic Institutions: a Study of Multimedia University Malaysia

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume7-...
Recent developments have witnessed the emergence of a new economy where knowledge has become a valuable resource and asset. The dynamism of the new economy requires us to not only quickly create knowledge, but also to acquire and apply knowledge quickly. One possible way to do so is to share our knowledge effectively. Knowledge sharing is envisaged as a natural activity of the academic institutions as the number of seminars, conferences and publications by academics is far exceeding any other profession, signifying the eagerness of academics to share knowledge. However, instead of knowledge sharing, "knowledge hoarding" could be more prevalent in academic institutions. This paper examines knowledge sharing behavior among academics in a private university in Malaysia. Factors affecting the willingness to share knowledge, broadly classified as organizational, individual and technology factors, are examined. The overall findings revealed that incentive systems and personal expectation...

Limitations of Network Analysis for Studying Efficiency and Effectiveness of Knowledge Sharing

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume8-...
Knowledge sharing is an important part of an employee's tasks as it is one of the mechanisms through which they learn and innovate. Sharing of knowledge typically occurs in the informal networks in the organization by means of social interaction. Several authors have proposed to use social network analysis to study the knowledge sharing relations in organizations to identify potential barriers concerning knowledge sharing. Although social network analysis has been applied in several cases, it has not been evaluated if this approach results in reliable results in terms of findings problems related to knowledge sharing. One might for instance find an isolated person with network analysis, but given the context this might not be necessary a problem. The goal of this research is to validate the use of social network analysis to study knowledge networks. We have selected one particular technique, called Knowledge Network Analysis, to evaluate in this research. The Knowledge Network...

Knowledge Sharing Among Malaysian Academics: Influence of Affective Commitment and Trust

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume11...
Knowledge resides within a human being and it is hard to be transferred to others. Unwillingness to share is one of the main impediments of knowledge sharing. In a university setting, this situation could be more alarming as universities are knowledge centric organisation. Knowledge sharing will help universities to strengthen its research and teaching activities. Despite the importance of knowledge sharing, many academics still hoard their knowledge. The aims for this paper are (1) to evaluate the influence of these two emotional factors towards knowledge sharing intention; (2) to examine whether the perception of knowledge sharing in public universities differs from private universities. The research model includes the theory of planned behaviour (TPB) and the two affective components. In order to examine the research model, a survey was conducted with a total respondent of 545 academics from 30 universities in Malaysia. Multiple linear regression was used to examine the research...

A Model of Antecedents of Knowledge Sharing

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume5-...
In the new era of the knowledge economy, knowledge-based work has replaced regular, sequential work with its characteristics of flexibility, complexity, and high uncertainty (Shieh-Chieh that knowledge is one of the most competitive resources for the dynamic global business environment (Sharif 2005). Within this context, an organisation's ability to effectively implement knowledge-based activities becomes increasingly vital for the development and sustenance of competitive advantage (De Carolis, 2003; Grant, 1996). Fundamentally, knowledge-based activities include the creation and integration of knowledge, the accumulation and utilisation of knowledge, and the learning and sharing of knowledge and together, these comprise knowledge management (Shieh-Chieh management (Szulanski, 1996; Gupta and Govindarajan, 2000). Egan (2003) argued that the effective flow of knowledge is only sustainable through people. Geraint (1998) contended that too much faith has been invested in technology...

A Spanish Knowledge Sharing Instrument Validation

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume13...
Abstract: Knowledge sharing research is growing in Latin America. Most instruments used to measure employees knowledge sharing activities have been developed in the Anglo-American language (English). Currently there is no instrument available to measur e the knowledge-sharing construct in Spanish. The purpose of this paper is to present the results of the research process adopted to design, construct and validate such an instrument in the Spanish language. The validation process was conducted with 228 k nowledge workers in Colombia. The instrument has two components. The first part (32 items) evaluates the different ways in which knowledge is shared in an organization. The second part (24 items) evaluates the different tools used in an organization t o share knowledge. The validation process is structured in three steps: the construction of the items following a review of the literature; psychometric validation, and the statistical verification of the instrument s sub-scales....

Knowledge Sharing Practices: Analysis of a Global Scandinavian Consulting Company

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume4-...
In a knowledge economy landscape, successful global consulting firms are the ones putting focus on effectively and efficiently organising and managing the highly distributed diversified knowledge in the organisation. In order to sustain their competitive advantage, knowledge-companies need to harness knowledge and to analyse knowledge sharing mechanisms and learning in the whole organisation. Knowledge sharing in global firms is a not only a cross-department process but it should also take place within the same department. It is well recognised that the knowledge sharing mechanism is a highly complex process to put in place and to promote in the organisation. The primary goal of our research is to empirically investigate knowledge sharing and learning mechanisms within a global consulting company. The phenomenology discipline has guided our research methodology because it is the most appropriate approach for coping with the social complexity of management and business. Our research...

Wikifailure: the Limitations of Technology for Knowledge Sharing

issuu.com/academic-conferences.org/docs/ejkm-volume8-...
Currently there is much interest in the use of Web 2.0 technologies to support knowledge sharing in organisations. Many successful projects have been reported. These reports emphasise how the use of such technology has unlocked new pathways for knowledge transfer. However, the limitations of Web 2.0 technologies are not yet well understood and potential difficulties may have been overlooked. This paper reports a case study of a Wiki which was implemented to support a group of researchers. Although belonging to the same institution, the group members were relatively dispersed and their research areas were disparate. Nevertheless a short study showed that there were benefits to be gained from sharing knowledge and that many of the researchers felt that a Wiki would be a good mechanism to support this. A Wiki was implemented and was initially very successful. A significant number of researchers contributed to the Wiki and almost all made use of it. However the usage declined over time...
