Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of the current study was to examine the influence of knowledge sharing on organizational performance in sport organizations.

Design/methodology/approach

A sample of sport managers in Iran completed a survey designed to identify and measure this relationship. The research sample was obtained through snowball sampling. A theoretical model was developed and tested based on literature review. SPSS18 and AMOS20 were applied to data analysis.

Findings

Utilizing structural equation modeling, the findings support the premise that knowledge sharing is significantly effective on organizational performance.

Practical implications

Relevant implications are provided for management as to how to improve sport organizational performance.

Originality/value

Knowledge sharing and performance has been well researched in large and small business enterprises. However, limited research in sport organizations with the European Foundation for Quality Management approach exists. This paper provides valuable insight into the measurement of knowledge sharing and performance in the sport organizations and offers a foundation for future organizational research.
