Title: The Impact Of In-Groups And Out-Groups On Knowledge Sharing In Russia And China
Author: Michailova, Snejina; Hutchings, Kate
Abstract: Management researchers have suggested that knowledge sharing has an important role to play in developing competitive advantage for organisations. It could be argued that the need to build advantage is even greater in the transition economies that are increasingly internationally oriented. Yet, it has been suggested that people in transition economies such as Russia and China have a propensity not to share knowledge. We proffer that Russians’ and Chinese’ willingness to share knowledge is highly influenced by group membership. By examining the extent to which group membership influences the processes of knowledge sharing in the Chinese and Russian cultural and institutional environments, we theoretically explore how in-groups and out-groups facilitate and impede knowledge sharing. Key Words: China, In-groups, Knowledge Sharing, Out-groups, Russia
