dc.description.abstractPurpose – The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the impact different aspects of culture have on knowledge transfer in project-intensive IT companies. Design/methodology/approach – Multiple case study of two IT consultancy companies. The data was collected through in-depth semi-structured interviews with 12 participants. Findings – Findings have identified five main categories of factors within organizational culture that has a significant effect on knowledge transfer in project-intensive IT companies. These categories are organizational values, relationships and communication, leadership, projects, and individual factors. Research limitations/implications – Future research should further investigate the categories identified in this study. Especially, the role of leadership and age distribution in terms of organizational culture and knowledge transfer. Practical implications – The role of organizational values, cooperation, and leaders’ behavior are all crucial for successful knowledge transfer. Knowledge transfer must be supported by organizational values, cooperation creates the best environment for knowledge transfer, and leaders must be aware of their own behavior. Originality – This study contributes to an increased understanding of how organizational culture affects knowledge transfer, especially in the context of project-intensive IT organizations.
