Program objectives :
Knowledge hiding (KH) is an intentional attempt by an individual to withhold or conceal knowledge that has been requested by another person (Connelly et al., 2012). KH has received some attention from practitioners and has been identified as an area requiring research attention.
To achieve the above-mentioned purposes, the following objectives are set: :
– Advice managers and policymakers to seek strategies for mitigating KH behavior
– Promote conversations about current and future research directions in KH
Program team :
– Klaus Solberg Söilen, Halmstad University, Sweden
– Mourad Oubrich, CIEMS, Morocco
– Loubna Echajari, Université de Technologie de Troyes, France
– Abdelati Hakmaoui, CIEMS, Morocco
Current Project :
Companies have faced increased environmental uncertainty and increasingly there is a need to compete in the global economy and to monitor and understand their environment more accurately for survival and success. KH is problematic because it prevents organizations from realizing the benefits and performance. Consequently, management must develop strategies to reduce it. Increased understanding of KH behavior will help organizations to develop appropriate HRM practices, design systems and processes facilitating knowledge sharing.
A project entitled: “Organizational factors influencing knowledge hiding in organizations: Multi Country study ” is conducted to understand KH and how we manage it.
