Abstract [en]

Digitalization has affected organizations and many work activities have changed as a result, there including how members of organizations share knowledge between each other. Knowledge is one of the most important resource in an organization whereof digital knowledge more easily can be accessed, utilized and spread to members of the organization. It is important to take charge of the knowledge already existing within the organization and share it between members of the organization as it can result in competitive advantages.

The purpose of the study has been to develop an understanding of how knowledge sharing within organizations is affected by digitalization. To achieve the purpose of the study, a qualitative method was used and interviews were carried out with respondents in higher positions of a selected organization, within the construction industry. The conclusion indicates that digitalization has made knowledge more effective to share. Since knowledge is available in digital form it has contributed to better accessibility, where several members of the organization can utilize the knowledge at the same time. In addition, the knowledge can be shared more quickly and across geographical distances, which has led to that knowledge can be shared less costly and more time efficiently.

Abstract [sv]

Digitaliseringen har påverkat organisationer där många arbetsaktiviteter ändrats som följd, där inkluderat hur organisationsmedlemmar delar kunskap mellan varandra. Kunskap är bland den viktigaste resursen i en organisation varav digital kunskap mer lättillgängligt kan nås, nyttjas och spridas till organisationens medlemmar. Det är viktigt att tillvarata på den kunskapen som redan finns inom organisationen och dela den mellan organisationens medlemmar då det kan ge upphov till konkurrensfördelar.

Syftet med studien har varit att utveckla en förståelse för hur kunskapsdelning inom organisationer påverkas av digitaliseringen. För att uppnå syftet gjordes en kvalitativ undersökning och intervjuer genomfördes med respondenter som har en högre befattning, på en utvald organisation inom byggbranschen. Slutsatsen indikerar att digitaliseringen effektiviserat organisationens kunskapsdelning. Att kunskap återfinns digitalt har bidragit till bättre tillgänglighet där flera av organisationens medlemmar kan ta del av kunskapen samtidigt. Kunskapen kan dessutom delas snabbare och över geografiska avstånd vilket resulterat i att kunskap mindre kostsamt och mer tidseffektivt kan delas.
