Simulating the impacts of mutual trust on tacit knowledge transfer using agent-based modelling approach
A simulation model based on trust and mutual benefit through the agent-based modeling and simulation shows that, the endowment effect, the initial trust between members and the minimum honesty are very important, which provides relevant practical guidance for organization managers in the context of tacit knowledge transfer.
Balancing the strength of external and internal ties for tacit knowledge management
The results confirm the proposition that both external and internal tie strength impose a positive effect on the process of tacit knowledge management and provide guidance for the enterprise’s relationship network management and innovation practice.
A Stochastic Information Diffusion Model in Complex Social Networks
A stochastic information diffusion model considering both population perturbation and connectivity variation has been proposed and shows the existence and uniqueness of the global positive solution and gives a sufficient condition of extinction of information on homogeneous network.
Analysing Participation in Electronic Networks of Practice (Preprint)
BACKGROUND Electronic Networks of Practice (ENoP) are professional social networks in which professionals share knowledge, advice, and ideas with each other on challenges encountered in practice.


Bridging intention and behavior of knowledge sharing
An innovative scale that captures the underlying intention, measures it, and assesses the resulting behavior is presented, which provides a potential tool that may be applied by managers for the purpose of measuring explicit and tacit knowledge-sharing intention and behavior.
