Governing Individual Knowledge Sharing Behavior

    Publikation: Working paperForskning

    Resumé

    The emerging Knowledge Governance Approach asserts the need to build microfoundations
    grounded in individual action. Toward this goal, using the Theory of Planned
    Behavior, we aim to explain individual knowledge sharing behavior as being determined
    by the intention to share knowledge and its antecedents: attitude toward knowledge
    sharing, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control. In addition, we consider
    managerial interventions (governance mechanisms) that managers can employ to
    influence the identified antecedents and thereby govern individual knowledge sharing
    behavior. We test the model arrived at on a dataset collected among individuals engaged
    in knowledge sharing in two competing firms. Results of the LISREL analysis show that
    the use of rewards affects attitudes toward knowledge sharing negatively, while the use of
    reciprocal schemes and communication mechanisms have a positive effect on subjective
    norms and perceived behavioral control, respectively.
