Behaviour that generates trust in relation to knowledgesharing (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to through a managerial point of view examine behaviour that generates trust in an organization in relation to knowledge sharing. Knowledge has become one of the most valuable assets within organizations. How effectively the resource is managed, shared and put into proper use plays a major roll in organizations success. Trust is one of the factors that motivates to knowledge sharing. The combination of factors that create trust and in their turn increase willingness to participate in the knowledge sharing process has been found to be unique for every organization. General rules how whole knowledge management initiatives should be constructed are therefor hard to form and should instead be adjusted to fit into the demand of the organization in question. The report includes a semistructured interview study in a boat company located in a Nordic country exploring managers opinions about behaviour that creates trust related to knowledge sharing. Managers do not only supervise the knowledge management initiatives, but can furthermore with their own behaviour have an impact in integration of the initiatives as well as creating a productive work environment. Managers can according to previous research with their behaviour create interpersonal trust, that in turn may suppor tthe knowledge sharing process within the organization.
