Knowledge is regarded as a primary source of value creation in an organization. However, knowledge is distributed asymmetrically in any firm. Distributed knowledge has to be integrated through knowledge transfer process and storing into knowledge repositories for future use. To start with knowledge transfer through social interaction, the Web based technology is a powerful means for communication between organizational members in order to transfer of knowledge regardless of their location. Such technology also allows for storage of the transferred knowledge. The importance of integrating storage of knowledge with knowledge transfer has been ignored in the knowledge transfer literature. Using the insights from the existing studies, this paper addresses an issue relating to the linkage of the knowledge transfer and the knowledge storage. The main contribution of this paper is the adoption of a holistic and integrated approach that supports the connectivity of knowledge transfer and storage through social and technological networks, when developing a framework for the successful accomplishment of knowledge transfer. This discussion is actually taken a first step towards developing some arguments about such interaction in order to broaden our understanding of the notion of knowledge transfer.
