RODRIGUEZ, Indira Arias; MUNIZ JR, Jorge  and  MUNYON, Timothy. The relationship between organizational climate and knowledge management: a review of the literature. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.1, pp. 316-325. ISSN 1984-6657.

The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between Organizational Climate (OC) and Knowledge Management (KM) based on systematic review of the literature in the Web of Science and Scopus databases, using the descriptors "organizational climate" and "knowledge management". The results showed a relationship between the terms, and no studies of this relationship were found in developing countries, nor in Brazil. There is a consensus in the literature, which points out that a favorable OC promotes benefits regarding KM and vice versa. Future studies should analyze relationships between OC and KM factors, for example, motivating factors and barriers to the intention to share knowledge, by evaluating work environments through research tools and rigorous correlation analyses. Also, study is needed on how OC and KM variables are related in different contexts and cultures.

Keywords : organizational climate; knowledge sharing; knowledge management.
