In recent years, the concept of knowledge in organizations has been become increasingly popular in the literature, as knowledge being recognized as the most important resource of organizations. Although knowledge has always been an important factor in organizations, only in the last decade has it been considered the primary source of competitive advantage and critical to the long-term sustainability of organizations. The recognition of knowledge, as the key resource of today’s organizations affirms the need for processes that facilitate the creation, sharing, and leveraging of individual and collective knowledge.
The major aim of this paper is to study the effective factors on knowledge sharing in organizations. The mentioned aim will be studied by supposing some factors such as demographical factors (sex, age, religious affiliation and reputation), organizational factors( information system, organization structure, motivation to share, opportunities to share and culture of the work environment) and secondary factors( nature of knowledge and value of knowledge) as effective factors to knowledge sharing in organizations.
The research methodology is descriptive, and for collecting theoretical aspects of the research, scientific books and journals are used. The results of this paper indicate that knowledge is now being seen as the most important strategic resource in organizations, and the management of this knowledge is considered critical to organizational success. The findings can be used by managers to more efficiently direct knowledge transfer resource allocation decisions to further optimize organizational performance.
