Abstract


This research aims to investigate and summarize the
predictors of knowledge sharing (KS) that can facilitate knowledge sharing practices among employees’ in the public sector universities.
Research data were collected from 216 employees of public sector universities using the self-administrated questionnaires. It has found that employees switching, death and retirement negatively influenced on knowledge sharing practices in these universities. Moreover, a fear to lose reward, status quo, power, authority, recognition,influence, and psychological ownership are the major factors that can create barriers to KS practices. The results reveal that Knowledge Management (KM) culture, social networking and information technology were fostered knowledge sharing practices among employees. Conversely, knowledge sharing motivation was unable to promote knowledge sharing. There are scant studies conducted to construct and test the conceptual model in real context of knowledge hoarding behavior especially in the perspective of developing countries. These results are beneficial for policy makers and top managements of universities.
