This research investigated which combination of factors had a positive and significant impact on knowledge sharing within an organisation. By finding this combination it will allow organisations to prioritise resources to specific factors that are seen to positively affect knowledge sharing.
One hundred and seventy nine employees of a prominent South African company gave an indication into which factors in combination would provide a model that best predicts a positive impact on knowledge sharing. Statistical testing carried out on the resulting data gave an indication of the best fitting model.
It was found that three of the four identified factors contributed 62% to the overall positive effect on knowledge sharing when measured together.
