The purpose of this concept paper is to have a better understand on knowledge sharing literature in general and subsequently will focus on the process and the model of knowledge sharing. Knowledge or knowing is personal, and thus is impossible to totally disembody from people into a fully explicit form. Here, knowledge is culturally surrounded within the organization as it is never totally neutral and unbiased and to some extent; it is inseparable from the values of those who produced it. Learning, face-to-face communication, meetings, forums, knowledge sharing and mentoring systems are examples of socially constructed knowledge intensive organization activities. Since the practices-based epistemology conceptualizes knowledge as embodied in action, which is highly contextual and socially constructed, it is easy to sum-up this terminology into one concept called knowledge sharing. Indeed, knowledge sharing practices are always based on practices, for example, practices of interviewing, practices aimed at building commitment and practices of communication. Finally, knowledge sharing has been allocated in three different perspectives named objectives perspectives, practice-based perspectives and mixed perspectives (the later combining the two former perspectives).
