Create culture for sharing knowledge

I think the difficulty is how to motivate everyone. If employees realized share knowledge may gain more benefit for now and future, the culture of share knowledge may have been created already. But how long may spend on creating a culture for an organization? ''Toyota set up factory in USA, which has the same management strategy and same managers from Japan, but the performance only achieve about 70%(yet even 70% was not worse than other competitors), 'but to gain same performance as Japanese TOYOTA factory may take about 10 years'Said by Toyota's manager  -from<< the machine changed the world>> Wolmack, J'' it is not easy to create or change culture from my point. For SMEs it will be more difficult, since this kind of organizations concentrate on more finance performance than other long-term profit, even though sharing knowledge may assist to increase performance, which has been proved as a right viewpoint. Setting up information system (use hardware and software) for stuffs to find useful information may be more helpful than a working handbook, but is that what share knowledge really means?

In my mind, sharing knowledge creates a vision about people have willing to help each other when they are trapped in problem during the daily work. Because when people meet the problems that may be the best time to push or lead them to learn. However, training and meeting helps to gain knowledge and working information is also useful. But the most effective approach to share knowledge may be people. Hence, creating a culture based on people may long term strategy while Peter Senge¡'s definition of learning organization is a vision or philosophy, which I don't think it may bring benefit in a short period of time.
