  1. By: Fascia, Michael
    Abstract: We can consider the unity of knowledge in a business context as a singular event, but nonetheless, deliberate a contrary perspective from current knowledge transfer practitioners. Both perspectives agree, deliverable knowledge is key for business success and competitive advantage but questions the problematic transfer of knowledge. This discussion examines the creation of knowledge, recognised within contemporary writings as significant in determining a starting point for analogous scrutiny, and asks if this focal point is inherently difficult to establish and measure? We then look to synthesise the foremost principle of ‘knowledge’, which helps underpin congruent knowledge transfer theories, perspectives, and doyennes from an occidental business perspective.

  2. By: Fischer, Caroline; Döring, Matthias
    Abstract: Purpose This research examines the impact of job-related knowledge sharing on information availability and job satisfaction for information-receiving employees in the public sector. Following self-determination theory, the study suggests that job satisfaction is only partly affected by knowledge sharing itself, but particularly through the availability of job-related information enabling the information receiver to work effectively. Methodology The hypotheses are tested with data from the U.S. Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS) from 2018. Additionally, results are replicated with earlier waves of the survey. Findings Results show the positive impact of job-related knowledge sharing on job satisfaction, whereby the availability of job-relevant information mediates this relationship partially. Originality The results emphasize that knowledge sharing is a highly social process in which support and relatedness play a significant role for success in addition to the diffusion of information itself. Practical Implications This study confirms that managers should provide room for social interactions when introducing knowledge management practices.

  3. By: Gustavo Manso; Farzad Pourbabaee
    Abstract: We study a social bandit problem featuring production and diffusion of knowledge. While higher connectivity enhances knowledge diffusion, it may reduce knowledge production as agents shy away from experimentation with new ideas and free ride on the observation of other agents. As a result, under some conditions, greater connectivity can lead to homogeneity and lower social welfare.
