Resource description

Knowledge sharing and learning in MNC's (Multinational Companies) is a cross-border process in two ways: not only organizational but also national borders have to be overcome which is a highly difficult and complex undertaking. However, for MNC's the highly diversified knowledge in the different geographically dispersed units is a key asset and the transfer and usage of this knowledge throughout the whole organization is the key for competitive advantage. This paper presents a theoretical concept of knowledge sharing in MNC's and focuses on the influence of the multinational or multicultural context on the process of knowledge sharing. The model is subject to broad empirical testing in the course of our It, therefore, provides an analysis of the most important international / inter-organizational context factors and suggestions how to handle the problems arising from cultural differences with respect to successful knowledge sharing.
