Abstract
With the recognition of knowledge as an essential resource of organizations as well as a company's only enduring source of competitive advantage in an increasingly dynamic world, knowledge management (KM) seems to have become a ubiquitous phenomenon both in the academic as well as in the corporate world. This paper presents insights from a current research project on knowledge transfer, creation and sharing in a cross-cultural context. Applying a case study research design, an empirical study using qualitative interviews with managers and other corporate staff was conducted in Japan in 2005 and 2006. I will look at critical recent issues in the context of knowledge organization(s) in Japan and try to identify and analyze differences in Japanese and Western approaches to knowledge management, transfer and creation. This paper also highlights relevant factors of influence on the knowledge transfer process within multinational corporations and points to the crucial issue of knowledge retention which has emerged recently in Japan.
