A significant constituent of knowledge making in expert organizations are the knowledge sharing practices within which knowledge is both disseminated and created. These practices give access to information sources and are based on individual networks. This means that individual and team-based motives to knowledge sharing are prerequisites in expert work to be able to create a common understanding of work processes and individual’s role in these processes. Knowledge-sharing practices are also very much bound to organizational culture and traditions. In the understanding of knowledge making it is important to take individual, group and organizational perspectives into account. This chapter draws a broad picture of how knowledge making is enacted through knowledge sharing and knowledge creation practices in expert work.
