Michael E. Kalman, Peter Monge, Janet Fulk, and Rebecca Heino discuss how in organizational settings, a communication dilemma exists whenever the interests of a collective (i.e., team, organization, interorganizational alliance) demand that people share privately held information but their individual interests instead motivate them to withhold it.
Fostering Intranet Knowledge-Sharing: An Integration of Transactive Memory and Public Goods Approaches
Andrea Hollingshead, Janet Fulk, and Peter Monge discuss how transactive memory theory is useful for predicting how organizational members use intranets to acquire, store and retrieve knowledge. Public Goods Theory is useful for predicting whom, how much, and when members will contribute and retrieve knowledge on intranets.
Janet Fulk discusses how the closing years of the 20th century brought a burst of theory, research, analysis and social commentary that established the network as the most important emergent organizational structure and the preeminent metaphor sense-making by academics and practitioners alike.
Michael E. Kalman, Janet Fulk, and Peter Monge discuss how organizations have increasingly become sites of collective action, where task performers rely upon shared databases as flexible means to collect and distribute information widely.
This study by Janet Fulk, Rebecca Heino, Andrew J. Flanagin, Peter Monge, Kijung Kim, and Wan-Ying Lin sought to provide insight into the collective action necessary to create a viable organizational knowledge-sharing network in the form of an Intranet. Intranets were conceived as offering the functionalities of public goods to organizational members, due to their connective and communal functions.
Michael E. Kalman, Peter R. Monge, Janet Fulk, and Rebecca Heino discuss how in organizational settings, a communication dilemma exists whenever the interests of a collective (i.e., team, organization, interorganizational alliance) demand that people voluntarily share privately held information, but their individual interests motivate them to withhold it instead.
