Knowledge Sharing and Organisational Learning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There are many debates at present as to how knowledge can be shared. It is felt by some that there is an over-dependence upon IT based systems to share knowledge and that such systems do not reflect the complex nature of learning within social organisations. The phrase 'social architecture' is being more commonly used as an element of the systems that affect and can support knowledge sharing. This paper shows some of key dynamics that, despite a slowly growing awareness of their importance within academia, did not reach the discussion table of the project board implementing a knowledge management system. The paper indicates areas for future research and makes recommendations for future project management
