Abstract

This paper develops a new theoretical model to represent the important knowledge sharing factors and their role in development of trust in professional learning organisations. These factors are built upon the assumptions of organisations knowledge sharing behaviour and the role of technological advancement/awareness based on literature. The factors we have introduced are hard and soft ties, habits and their relationships to tie's (soft/hard), development of personal mastery, development of system thinking, internal dialogue with the use of technology, and resource exchange (physical and explicit). We have also argued that some factors such as age, gender, citizenship, and marital status are not the significant factors in building trust for knowledge sharing behaviour in professional real organisations environments.
