2015-11-24 | 来源:51Due教员组 | 类别:更多范文

是什么让戈尔公司及公司员工变得闻名,这个不仅只是体现在戈尔斯特这个名字之上,而且体现在公司内部独特的管理模式。该模式的重点就是重申戈尔公司管理模式的特征,因为它是非常重要的模式,它形成了一个成型的潜在管理知识模块。首先该组织形成格子形状,这是一种非结构化的组织。格子型组织的主要特点是它没有传统的层次结构,每一位员工之间的交流可以立即传输而没有中间人,且这种交流是平等的。其次,的确每个项目都有一个领导负责;但是这个领导关系被定义为一种追随力,这意味着某个人能让其他人员跟随自己的,他就是领导人。在某个部门或具体某个项目之中,并没有指定一个经理、老板或类似的人负责。所有员工在戈尔公司都是平等的。

What makes W.L. Gore and Associates famous is not only the Gore-Tex, but also the unique management pattern within the organization. It is important to reiterate the main characteristics of Gore’s management because it is the very management pattern that has formed a potential problem related to Knowledge Management (KM). Firstly, the organization was structured in lattice, which is a type of unstructured organization. Lattice organization’s main characteristic is that there is no conventional hierarchy. Employees communicate with each other directly without intermediary and equally. Secondly, there is indeed a leader for each project; but the leadership is defined by followership, which means that the person who can make some certain workers follow is the leader. There is no assigned person in charge in a department or project as a boss, manager or the like. All the employees are equal within Gore. What should be noticed is that if anyone has a good idea and successfully make some of his co-workers positive about his idea, then he will be the leader of the team in the process of carrying out the idea. That can be described as figure 1.

Figure 1

The problem

Knowledge sharing is one of the main contents of KM. Some researchers, for example, Prahalad and Hamel (1990), demonstrated that the ability of knowledge sharing is one of the major drivers for companies to gain sustainable competitive advantages. Although knowledge creation derives from individual level (Nonaka and Takeuchi, 1995), a specific context of individual relationships is necessary for the sharing of knowledge. That is to say that knowledge sharing is of vital importance for Gore’s development. However, this is the very area which in Gore has a problem。


It can be seen in Figure 1 that every team or project is independent from others in the process of carrying out its specific idea, which forms the basis of the problem that knowledge cannot flow fluently through the whole organization. The motivations behind knowledge sharing are based on the social relationships between employees within the organization (Burke 2011). The range of the social network will influence the effect of knowledge sharing (Tohidinia & Mosakhani, 2010). Yet, the fact in Gore is that the whole social network is divided into several sub-networks and there is no connection among these sub-networks, just as mentioned before that each team or project is independent from others. The results can be demonstrated in the following case. If team A has solved a problem which team B is facing, the obstacles of knowledge sharing make team B has to “reinvent the wheel”. Obviously, it is a waste of time and resources. Vice versa, if a problem faced by any team or project can seek for experience from other teams or projects, and then the efficiency of Gore will be raised to a higher level because it saves time and resources for Gore.


Statement of purpose: The policy will create a mechanism to eliminating barriers in the process of knowledge sharing.
Scope of Policy: the company as a whole

Definitions of key words: Lattice organization: unstructured organization in which all employees are equal and can be a leader of a certain project.
Knowledge sharing: an important aspect of KM

Responsibilities: Gore needs to think about developing a mechanism in order to remove obstacles in knowledge sharing within the organization and ultimately raise the whole work efficiency.
Key principles: the following rules can be considered as the key principles of the new mechanism.

l  Commitment: Evoking contributions from employees. Because individuals are the sources of new knowledge according to Nonaka and Takeuchi (1995). Make all the employees realize that they are responsible for knowledge sharing.

l  Availability: If all employees can get benefits from the mechanism, they will be motivated to share new knowledge. Besides, this can help employees from all aspects and can finally achieve the desired goal of improving work efficiency.

l  Quality: Quality of knowledge is important especially there knowledge will be shared with all employees in Gore. There should be audit programme to make sure that new knowledge that will be shared is qualified. There should also be ways and policies to let the original contributor to update the knowledge they shared.

Guidelines for implementation: Through a knowledge sharing mechanism, Gore can actually improve employees’ work efficiency. This will be beneficial not only to Gore, but also to all the employees. So the framework of the new mechanism can be like what shows in Figure 2 (all the symbols stand the same with Figure 1, the circle in the middle is the mechanism).
