Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Knowledge Management Systems (KMS) help decision makers and users leverage and share their knowledge. In the current fluid environment, the challenge for Multinational Corporations (MNC) is to accumulate knowledge that stems from various sources to support Decision Making (DM) processes. Based on semi-structured interviews with 42 subjects, this paper identifies factors that affect knowledge sharing through the use of KMS to support DM processes in MNC. The study extends the existing literature by proposing a new theoretical framework.
