Abstract

Structure of the codified knowledge matters: it defines knowledge transferability while its absence creates information overload. Knowledge transferability creates organizational value through an increase of intellectual capital, innovative activity, and firm performance. The knowledge-based view postulates higher transferability of codified knowledge, but the codification approach complies with a set of contradictions. The present empirical study uncovers nonlinear relationships between knowledge structure and knowledge transferability and encourages further studies toward search for optimal knowledge structure.
