Why is it important?

This study is important as it indicated that all the antecedents play a substantial function in knowledge sharing effectiveness. In addition, perceived risk plays a mediating role between trust and knowledge sharing effectiveness. This research also proved that the communication skill also plays a mediating role between leadership style and knowledge sharing effectiveness.
