The survival of almost all businesses is dependent upon the creation and utilization of new knowledge and it is therefore inevitable
that knowledge needs to be shared. Knowledge sharing can be described as a series of processes that are adopted in order to help
improve the overall performance of a community – whether corporate, small enterprise or local-based structures. The essence of
knowledge sharing is to improve shared dialogue and communication between people within that community in order to encourage a
more holistic approach which will consequently increase productivity. However, the sharing of information constitutes a major
challenge in the field of knowledge management. One of the issues would be the existence of members of the community who do not
share a common interest in sharing with others. This paper discussed some of the issues, problems and challenges pertaining to
knowledge sharing in organizations. In doing so, this paper began the discussion with the background of the study in the introduction
which briefly describe the nature of knowledge sharing and distribution in organizations. This was followed by discussions on benefits
and the importance of knowledge sharing to justify the need to highlight the discussion on the issues within the organization
communities, problems and challenges in knowledge sharing in the following section before concluding.
