This paper reports on the results of studying the applicability of a model for Shared Knowledge Creation (SKC). The model is based upon a previous pilot study and was tested in a New Product Development (NPD) setting involving four projects in two high technology companies located in the Nordic countries. In particular, four factors presented in the model were explored: (1) the SKC process; (2) IT infrastructure in support of the process; (3) catalysts; and (4) organizational issues and SKC. Implications are drawn for practice and for future research.
