This was a question Shell asked in an internal survey, several years ago, in order to understand the incentives and barriers for knowledge sharing. The top 6 answers were as follows
- More time
- More feedback on use of the knowledge
- Recognition from peers
- Knowing that it made an impact
- An easier way to do it
- Thank you from colleagues
- Hard incentives, and
- Directives from management.
If you want people to share more knowledge, show them that it makes a difference when they do.
