Knowledge is an essential resource for an individual or organization. While knowledge sharing is an important human daily activity to create opportunities in maximizing employees' innovation in organization to achieve performance or to grow individually, Knowledge sharing is the process of transferring knowledge from a person to another in organization. However, previous studies have indicated that employees are refused to share knowledge. Many factors influencing knowledge sharing were identified to solve the problem. Critical reviews on factors affecting knowledge sharing; individual, organization and technology factors are frequent mentioned in literature. Thus, this study proposes a conceptual model that takes into consideration the three factors and related theories to support the constructs in developing a fit knowledge sharing model. This study will improve the understanding on theories, factors affecting knowledge sharing. For the paradigm model of theory, the concepts were drawn from the causal condition, contextual condition, main context, intervening condition, interaction strategy.and result. In this study, 'the process of development through the sharing of experience' is identified as being the key category. The study suggests how to improve the quality of the knowledge concerned, organize such knowledge and/or advance its utilization and sharing .
