The correlation between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation and the attitude towards knowledge-sharing (English)
Abstract [sv]

Då kunskap anses vara en avgörande faktor för ett företags förmåga att konkurrera blir frågan hur kunskap hanteras allt viktigare. Att samla in, lagra och dela kunskap är nyckeldelar för att nå framgång där konkurrensen är allt hårdare. Vad är det då som motiverar medarbetare att dela kunskap? Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka om det finns ett samband mellan olika typer av motivation (yttre och inre) och medarbetarens attityd gällande att dela kunskap. Studien grundades i ett instrument från 2007 som består av variablerna yttre motivation, inre motivation, attityd och avsikt. I undersökning deltog 84 respondenter. I studien utgörs yttre motivation av två variabler, organisationsbelöningar samt gensvar från kollegor. Inre motivation utgörs av de två variablerna tilltro till egen kunskapsförmåga samt glädje i att hjälpa andra. Resultatet visade att endast gensvar från kollegor samt glädje i att hjälpa andra signifikant samvarierade med medarbetarens attityd gällande kunskapsdelning. Det här var i linje med tidigare forskning.

Abstract [en]

As knowledge is considered a crucial asset in companies the importance of managing knowledge increases. Gathering, storing and sharing knowledge are key elements in gaining advantage in a competitive market. What motivates employees to engage in knowledge-sharing activities? This study examined how different kinds of motivation (extrinsic and intrinsic) correlates with the employee's attitude towards knowledge-sharing. This study was based on a questionnaire developed in 2007 consisting of the variables extrinsic motivation, intrinsic motivation, attitude and intention. In this research 84 respondents part took. In this study, extrinsic motivation consists of two constructs, organizational rewards and reciprocal benefits. Intrinsic motivation consists of the two constructs knowledge self-efficacy and enjoyment in helping others. The results showed that the motivational factors of reciprocal benefits and enjoyment in helping others were the only two significantly associated employee attitudes toward knowledge sharing. This was in line with previous research.
