What is a knowledge sharing culture?

The professional practice of crafting knowledge sharing (KS) cultures is where things are 'arranged' so those participating can create and transfer knowledge (including data, information and wisdom) faster and more effectively as a team 'and' as individuals.


When the conditions are right, this knowledge creating capability greatly enhances trust, motivation and confident decision making at the individual and team level.

The work of the Enabler, the individual's tasked with helping to make knowledge sharing cultures happen, is to elevate individual knowledge creation and transfer through structured approaches to the team level which also introduces a knowledge creation and transfer multiplier effect.

Building in 'self-sustaining' elements into the process when setting up knowledge sharing cultures results in them becoming a competitive advantage, which cannot be copied.
