Abstract

Purpose

To effectively implement knowledge management, one prerequisite is to understand and implement the knowledge management enablers in the sense of optimal institutional efficiency. This paper aims to analyze and measure the significant enablers in overseeing knowledge management in the construction sector.

Design/methodology/approach

The mixed-method technique was used to achieve the objective of this study and involved the application of detailed questions to project engineers and project managers within leading construction engineering companies, provided by the Institution of Engineering and Technology Ghana. In total, 150 questionnaires were collected and analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences v. 26.

Findings

The study confirms that the knowledge management enablers such as employees knowledge, motivations, effective decisions and strategic planning are some of the important ways in which construction professionals can achieve different strategic goals in many processes and concluded that the progress of the next generation knowledge management strategy will be based on content sharing, decision-making and by promoting the free flow of ideas.

Originality/value

The study offers perspectives into knowledge management enablers and recommends key performance factors, championed by Ghanaian construction contractors for institutional knowledge capture.

Abstract

Purpose

The effective and efficient implementation of daily work activities necessitates tacit knowledge sharing, boosting firm productivity. However, the link between tacit knowledge sharing within a company and its effects on organizational performance is unclear, so the purpose of this study is to examine the impact of sharing tacit knowledge on the success of a company.

Design/methodology/approach

Construction managers and senior managers were the study’s target participants. The correlation matrix was used to assess the significant correlation between study frameworks and the statistical approach of multiple regression was also used to test the hypotheses using statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) v.26.

Findings

The findings suggest that companies will be more willing and capable of making decisions based on experience when knowledge systems are used successfully. Furthermore, new organizational knowledge and particular evaluation procedures, such as anxiety and conflict resolution preparation, personal relationship and training improvement, mediation and task clarity, are explained, which can aid in success.

Originality/value

The study contributes to construction companies’ perception of knowledge sharing and recommends organizations to build capacity to encourage, improve engagement and review to maintain the dissemination of knowledge.
