Abstract:This study has extended the current literature by providing empirical findings based on actual knowledge sharing behavior and moved knowledge sharing research toward understanding the complexity of technology-mediated knowledge sharing in cross-cultural contexts. One major contribution of this dissertation is that it has provided sound explanations for cross-cultural knowledge sharing patterns by synthesizing the factors from separate fields including national culture, organizational studies and online communities of practice. Another accomplishment of this study is expanding the UTAUT for future research in cross-cultural knowledge sharing through online media.
