VERGARA, Sylvia Constant  e  ALVES, Luiz Ernesto Fonseca. Knowledge sharing in organizations: possibilities and delimitations. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.2, pp. 47-59. ISSN 1984-6657.

The literature has been prodigal regarding knowledge management and share of knowledge. It states the existence of an age of knowledge and the relevance of capture and transference of individual and collective knowledge. Due to its continued repetition, these ideas have been legitimated, not establishing, however, a debate upon the circumstances that support the share of knowledge and which collective reasons can stimulate sharing the knowledge. Here is the perceived gap that motives the present study. Supported by a deconstructive methodology, it raises the following question: which circumstances and reasons can facilitate or difficult the share of knowledge within organizations? In other words, what are the possibilities and limitation of this share of knowledge? Based on extent classic and contemporaneous literature which address focus on groups within organizations, as well as on a field research conducted inside two organizations, the study concludes that groups, individuals and organizations suffer and exercise contradictory actions, so that organization initiatives aiming the share of knowledge can not disregard them. Polar elements, such as cooperation and competition, individuality and conformity, freedom for expression and inhibition of feelings characterize circumstances and reasons that can be seen as possibilities and also limitation for sharing knowledge
