Abstract

Knowledge management includes several aspects, which can sometimes be even contradictory when operationalized in the daily activities of an organization. In this study, we empirically explore the knowledge management activities that large and small and medium sized companies in Finland have. The focus is especially on sharing and securing knowledge. The theoretical background for the paper is in the broader frame of knowledge management literature, and especially the knowledge sharing and knowledge security viewpoints. The empirical study offers a view on the status of both knowledge sharing and knowledge security in companies of different sizes. The study is able to identify the main challenges in knowledge sharing among companies of different sizes. Furthermore, the areas of knowledge security that still need more careful attention and development actions among companies in their daily operations, are also identified.
