<p>This research asked the following question: is there a correlation between types of organizational culture and factors influencing knowledge transfer? It hypothesized that organizations scoring high on the cultural factors of openness to change/innovation, and task-oriented organizational growth would tend to be fertile to knowledge transfer. Second, it hypothesized that organizations scoring high on the factors of bureaucratic and competition/confrontation would tend to be infertile to knowledge transfer.</p> <p>The research looked at Air Force squadrons, surveying members of 22 squadrons with a 62-item, 5-point Likert-type instrument. The research concluded that there appears to be a correlation between organizational culture and factors influencing the transfer of knowledge that warrants further investigation.</p>
