These practices also give access to information sources and are based on individual networks. This means 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 in business organizations it is important to take individual, group and organizational perspectives into account. This chapter aims to draw the broad picture of how knowledge-making are developed and used through knowledge sharing and knowledge creation practices in expert work.
