Knowledge Sharing, Organization, Social Structures

Social structures are considered as an important channel for knowledge sharing within organizations. In recent years, knowledge management has begun to shift from focusing primarily on technology solutions toward exploring the social relationships through which knowledge is shared. Therefore, a wide variety of social structures have been recognized within the context of organizations. To utilize these social structures as an effective channel for knowledge sharing, necessity of a holistic view on their types and attributes seems crucial. An understanding of the different types and attributes of social structures in organizations will provide a lens through which to examine their dynamic nature in relation to knowledge-sharing activities.

Some months ago, I performed a research on knowledge sharing social structures within organizations. The goal was to extract the different types and properties of social structures and their potential effect on knowledge sharing process within an organization. I  put my reports here (draft1, report_oss_knowledge) for those who are interested in this area .
