Purpose – The proposed study examines the effect of employee individual factors on knowledge sharing (KS) process and further shows a way through which top B-Schools of Delhi and NCR (National Capital Region) can perform better in management education.
Design/methodology – The purposive and convenience sampling have been used to conduct the survey. The study derived from a survey conducted on 126 faculty members of top 10 management colleges of Delhi and NCR. SEM (Structural Equation Modeling) has been applied to investigate the effectiveness of the proposed model.
Findings – The outcomes show that individual factors- cooperative behavior, self-efficacy and T-shaped skill significantly affect KS process. The outcomes also revealed that faculty members of the B-Schools of Delhi and NCR willing to share their knowledge with each other to get a better performance in management education.
Research limitation –Upcoming researchers can find out how other factors such as organizational (firm size) and personal traits (age, qualification, and past experience) may have relationships among these factors of KS and processes.
Practical implications – As of a practical point of view, the relationships between KS individual factors, processes, and B-Schools performance can give an idea about how B-schools can encourage KS behavior to maintain their superior performance.
Originality/value – The results of the proposed work offer a hypothetical foundation, and at the same time, can be used to examine relationships between KS individual factors, processes, and B-Schools performance. Since for a managerial viewpoint, present work recognized quite a few individual factors important for successful KS and argued about the inferences of these factors for making strategies that can promote KS in higher educational institutes.
