Barriers to knowledge sharing

Mentioned in a previous post the barriers to knowledge within my organisations. In 2008 we undertook a knowledge survey with over a third of the organisation taking part. Survey was a mixture of online polls, face-to-face interviews, anecdotal evidence and telephone interviews. We found there were four main barriers to knowledge sharing. Over the next 4 days I’ll run through these. Looking back over the last 12 months I’m not sure they have changed.

Possible barriers to knowledge sharing

1 – Culture

Knowledge Sharing not seen as a priority

Lack of awareness of the potential role of Knowledge Sharing

Not aligned to processes

Not essential for daily work

Silos and rigid reporting lines

To many firm bottlenecks and roadblocks that prevent holistic approaches to knowledge sharing

No time invested in creating a passion for knowledge sharing
