Abstract

Knowledge is seen as a crucial factor behind sustainable advantage and success for Information Communication Technology (ICT) business organizations. Consequently, sharing knowledge (SK) has been considered as a main element of success, which is closely interlinked with organizational culture (OC), and OC is believed to have significant influences on the processes of SK. Such interrelationships between both concepts can be reflected in the fact that both concepts focus on people who share and interact knowledge as well as those who create and build up the organizational cultural values and meanings. Accordingly, in the literature, although there is a considerable amount of research which concerns issues related to the influence of OC on the process of SK, there is a lack of research that proposes a coherent framework which assists firms to establish good practice for SK processes. In this study, the influence of OC on the processes of SK in ICT organizations in Libya is investigated. This aim will be accomplished by applying a multi-case study approach to examine four different cases (two public and two private) ICT Libyan firms. Both quantitative and qualitative data will be collected using different data collection methods, namely questionnaire, in depth interviews and official documents. The outcomes of this research will be to establish a framework that assists ICT firms to perform better practices in SK processes.
