Thanks to subscriber, Ian Crawford, for sending through a link to academic research by Khaled Chiri. Khaled’s paper, Knowledge Sharing and Organisational Enabling Conditions, studied the psychology underpinning successful knowledge sharing cultures. The outcome of the research shows that it isn’t positive attitudes towards knowledge sharing that drives success, but rather, recognition of a person’s effort, their own confidence in their ability to share correctly, mutual trust within the group and their management, and aspirations for the development of new skills. Essentially, the research confirms what the KCS methodology considers to be so important: trust, coaching, recognition, and the space and opportunity to grow capabilities. The research model Khaled designed is based on the Theory of Planned Behaviour, and you can learn more, here.
Best wishes,
