Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to understand the barriers that give impact towards the knowledge sharing between individuals in organizations. Knowledge sharing became the significant part of many organizations’ knowledge-management strategy. Even though the knowledge sharing is signifying practice for organizations’ competitiveness directly and market performance indirectly, several barriers make it difficult for knowledge management to achieve the goals and deliver a positive return on investment (ROI). The barriers were identified through few literature reviews. The findings of previous studies revealed that there are so many factors that are affecting the knowledge sharing in organizations. This paper provides the review of major factors that influence knowledge sharing in organizations which are the individuals, culture, technology and organizational barriers.
