Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Little is known about the effect of sociability and friendship values on the traits and skills of knowledge acquisition in self-managing teams. A survey of 89 individuals organised into 13 self-managing teams was conducted in a service organisation to investigate the relationship between the Hagoel’s friendship dimensions and a number of knowledge acquisition attributes. Results indicate that most, but not all, of Hagoel’s friendship values-sociability are positively related to variables of knowledge acquisition. Theoretical and practical applications of these findings are discussed.
