Abstract— This article discusses the culture of knowledge sharing as a factor of business success of an engineering company. Based on the key concepts of culture and theories of knowledge in organizations, it aimed to identify the predictors of success of an engineering company and to analyze the culture of knowledge sharing and its impact on organizational growth. After conducting semi-structured interviews with managers and employees, qualitative analyses were performed and the indicators of success were defined, which allowed for an assessment of the knowledge sharing culture and its relevance for the organization’s success. The findings indicate that knowledge sharing is part of the organization’s culture and represents an important factor for its success. Innovation, training, quality management and the values established from the foundation are key elements that fostered organizational growth.

Index Terms— Knowledge, knowledge sharing, organizational culture.
