Publication Date



Organizational knowledge resources typically exist in specialized pockets scattered across the firm. As distributed knowledge systems, firms’ capacity to manage their knowledge resources is linked with their ability to integrate these pockets of specialized knowledge. Firms are increasingly depending on teams to strategically consolidate their dispersed knowledge into productive outcomes. Teams integrate knowledge from external sources with internal knowledge such as skills, know-how, and expertise of their members to create project outcomes. The aim of this research will be to examine how knowledge integration in software teams is influenced by project uncertainty and IT-usage.
