Abstract:
Due to the rapid change of conditions knowledge is becoming increasingly more importance today. Knowledge is now considered superior to technology and capital as a source of competitive advantage, however needs to be efficiently transferred and well managed to explore its full potential. The process of knowledge transfer is actually the core business of training organisations. Even though, as in the present study, knowledge might be developed and maintained by third parties, yet, it is up to the training organisation to work on transferring this knowledge to their trainees. This study intends to investigate three main issues: 1. How knowledge is effectively transferred into an IT training organisation especially in Egypt. 2. Do cultural, political and socio-economic factors affect the process of knowledge transfer especially if this knowledge is an externally produced one coming from a different foreign context? 3. How knowledge can be repacked to suit local trainees. Attempting to cover these previous issues, a list of research aims and objectives followed by research questions were set up. The literature review which was found convenient, from the researcher's point of view, to cover so far these domains is shown in the contents of this report. In order to get empirical data to allow thorough analysis and investigation different research methodologies and tools were used and initial results and findings that were obtained will be presented during the course of the report.
