Abstract: This research aims to study the association between knowledge sharing activities and organisational performance. Theoretical relationships are verified through an empirical assessment of 237 Kenyan firms in the petroleum and telecommunication industries. The industries were selected to tackle both tangible and intangible assets. This paper demonstrates how firms that appreciate knowledge sharing principles enjoy superior gains than their rivals. The issue of dissemination of stocks of knowledge has not been factored as a practice of knowledge sharing. Fresh studies can be carried out on the topic in its entirety. It demonstrates knowledge sharing actions that have a positive influence on the organisational performance. The visualisation of knowledge sharing principles illustrates intellectual creativity. Various knowledge embracing industries can adopt this innovation.

Keywords: competitive advantage; knowledge management; organisational performance; knowledge sharing; organisational learning.
