Abstract

Managers often struggle to promote an environment in which design engineers have the opportunity to develop trust, which is central part of a design team's knowledge sharing. Trust plays a significant role in whether design engineers cooperate or not and whether design engineers share or conceal knowledge from the team members. Trust is determined to be one of the several antecedents to knowledge sharing as well as being integral to other variables that impact knowledge sharing culture. This study aims to investigate the factors that affect trust in design team knowledge sharing culture. This review provides more insight to managers and design engineers on the value of trust and the factors affecting trust in building knowledge sharing culture and offers directions for enhancement.
