Abstract: Organizations are epistemic communities (Hakanson, L. 2010), primarily engaged in newlineeconomic activities embedded in the existing knowledge base of an organization. Knowledge processes in the organization are ntricately tied to the culture of an organization which serves a dual purpose of sociability and solidarity by integrating people in the organization and catering to the business needs. The overarching research question quotWhich attributes of organizational culture facilitate knowledge sharing in the organization?quot is examined by focusing on two lines of inquiry, the first line of inquiry attempted to understand knowledge sharing in the organization and its goals and modes. The second line of inquiry attempted to investigate critical organizational attributes facilitating knowledge sharing in the organization. newlineThe phenomenon under investigation is knowledge sharing, a culturally determined newlineprocess in the organization intended to leverage internal and external knowledge, newlineassumes ease to reinforce knowledge sharing behaviour of people through cultural newlinecompetence. The technology used in knowledge sharing can inform human judgment, reduce transactional and interaction cost but it cannot replace human judgment. The study considers a complementary pluralistic view of knowledge as more processual and dynamic (Tsoukas, H.2010) and a synchronic view of culture as a unified orientation that newlineshapes interaction and behaviour of people in the organization. The study is primarily an explanatory research with a sample survey approach situated in the oil and gas sector in India. The sampling of organizations is based on convenience sampling, and respondents (unit of analysis) are chosen using random sampling method after applying inclusion criterion. For the investigation, primary data from 305 participants using a structured questionnaire was collected. Hypotheses are tested using statistical analysis for answering the overarching and other sub-questions. Statistical newlineanalysis included reliability .
