Knowledge sharing in an organization is a complex process with many factors influencing the activity. This paper reviews research on the topic and identifies many of the variables (or factors) identified by previous authors. We also identify where such factors have been measured empirically or investigated using qualitative techniques. Some shortcomings are identified and a possible avenue of research suggested that will provide further insight into what drives knowledge sharing in a modern organization. The paper focuses on describing the underlying conceptual framework for studying the problem using the individual knowledge worker and the knowledge sharing activity as the unit of analysis.
