dc.description.abstract Knowledge sharing is a process that can enhance organizational innovativeness. Therefore, knowledge sharing is essential for organizations that build their competitive advantage on the ability to come out with innovations quicker or better than their competitors. Generally, it is supposed that the intensity of knowledge sharing could be influenced by national culture as well as other factors. The aim of this article is to examine in more detail the differences in tools used for knowledge sharing and the main factors influencing knowledge sharing in Czech, German, and Japanese companies. A qualitative design was chosen for the study. Semi-structured interviews were held with eleven managers. The collected data were analyzed with both open and axial coding. The results support the premise that national culture has an impact on knowledge sharing. © Common Ground, Zuzana Crhová, Jana Matošková, Drahomíra Pavelková, All Rights Reserved. en
