Collaborative research is being undertaken to examine the role that organisational culture plays in determining an individual's attitude towards knowledge sharing, and how these cultures might impact on knowledge sharing behaviour in different organisations. The international scope of one of the project’s provided an opportunity to collect data from organisations spanning national boundaries comprising of various organisational types. Findings from the combined research indicate that it is organisational type rather than national identity that appears to have the most significant impact on knowledge sharing behaviour.
