An Empirical Examination of Knowledge-Sharing Model in Information Systems Groups
Knowledge-sharing represents a key ingredient for group performance and success in work projects. Thus, understanding factors affecting knowledge-sharing in group work settings is critical for group effectiveness and success. Based on organisational behaviour and information systems (IS) literatures, the present study suggests that group efficacy and group cohesion will have direct effects on perceived loafing. In turn, perceived loafing, group efficacy, and group cohesion are posited to have direct effects on a member's behavioural intention to share knowledge with other group members. The results revealed that group efficacy and group cohesion had negative effects on perceived loafing which, in turn, demonstrated a negative effect on behavioural intention to share knowledge. Group efficacy and group cohesion demonstrated non-significant direct effects on behavioural intention. These results provide valuable implications for research and practice.
