Factors Affecting Knowledge Sharing Intention Among Academic Staff
The objective of this research is to study the predictors that affect knowledge sharing intention among academic staff in public higher education institutions. A total of 120 questionnaires were distributed among academic staff at 4 public higher education institutions in Malaysia. Collectively, 97 usable responses were returned. Multiple regression analysis was used to analyze the data. The finding indicated that attitude, subjective norm, and self-efficacy were positively and significantly related to knowledge sharing intention. Future research should consider the type of knowledge that is being shared. In addition, it would also be interesting to compare public and private universities in terms of knowledge sharing intention among academic staff. This chapter gives a clear explanation of the predictors that determine the knowledge sharing intention among academic staff. Thus, top management can implement a practical plan to support those determinants.
