Resource description

Management researchers have suggested that knowledge sharing has an importantrole to play in developing competitive advantage for organisations. It could be arguedthat the need to build advantage is even greater in the transition economies that areincreasingly internationally oriented. Yet, it has been suggested that people intransition economies such as Russia and China have a propensity not to shareknowledge. We proffer that Russians’ and Chinese’ willingness to share knowledge ishighly influenced by group membership. By examining the extent to which groupmembership influences the processes of knowledge sharing in the Chinese andRussian cultural and institutional environments, we theoretically explore how in-groupsand out-groups facilitate and impede knowledge sharing.Key Words: China, In-groups, Knowledge Sharing, Out-groups, Russia
