Abstract

After the economic crisis in Thailand, many management concepts, theories and practices were adopted by Thai organizations to help them meet their ultimate purpose of sustainable development and longevity. The theory and concept of the learning organization has become popular among Thai organizations. Much research has shown that for-profit organizations and state enterprises are coping with current challenges by becoming learning organizations. However, in order to succeed in implementing learning organization t'heory in Thailand, more complex and culturally specific ideas need to be adapted to mach the new cultural context rather than attempt to simply impose a western context. The purpose of this study was to develop a knowledge sharing model for the implementation of the learning organization in Thailand. The objectives of this study are: first, to analyze learning organization theories to specify the knowledge sharing process in Thailand; second, to provide justifications for how Thai organizations adapt the knowledge sharing process within the Thai context; third, to investigate factors, especially Thai cultural factors, influencing knowledge sharing in Thai organizations; fourth to develop a knowledge sharing model for the implementation of the learning organization in the Thai context; fifth, to test the model by collecting data from a sample survey of Thai organizations; and finally, to suggest some policy implications of the empirical findings for implementing in current practices.
