What kind of knowledge sharer are you?

A foundation’s tendency to share knowledge is strongly influenced by two factors: its capacity to share knowledge and its culture around knowledge sharing. Capacity refers to the processes, staff, and resources needed for foundations to share their knowledge, while culture refers to internal values, leadership, and overall interest that support sharing. By taking a closer look at key components of capacity and culture, foundations can identify their strengths and challenges with regard to sharing knowledge. In turn, these qualities shed light on opportunities to become a stronger knowledge sharer.
