Barriers are created psychologically in firms by having wrong perceptions and thoughts about other people and processes. Understanding each other whether in social life or at work by having a good communication and being a good listeners could unfreeze barriers between people. Organizational culture as far I know, acts as a barrier in every single improvement implementation I have studied so far. However, who is creating that?? It is us who did that “THE PEOPLE”. People starting to give false promises and lies to deceive others doing what they want, therefore, people start to have a trust issue with others. It is very difficult to build trust, but very easy to destroy it. When talking about organizational culture as a barrier I think it should be focuses deeply about people. Management should start to act and talk in simple and honest way with no misleading speeches. Talk simple, be simple, understand, be honest, value the others, give others a credit for their achievements, you name them. Everyone knows about them inside, but very few who really act on that. So start fixing yourself first, in order for you to start with the others.

Limitation in knowledge management arises from the behaviour of people and organisational culture. It is observed that employees or resources are reluctant in sharing information with their counter parts because they believe that their value in the firm will be lost or reduced once the information has been made accessible to other employees. Furthermore, attitude of employees is also extremely critical in this process as information and knowledge can lose their value or meaning if they are expressed in a way that is clouded by a person’s own opinion about it. People have different perspectives on every single aspect and transmitting information with its true essence in such scenarios becomes a tedious task. This is considered as an organizational cultural barrier. The thing is that most reward systems in many firms promoted and rewarded people based on their individual performances, which proved to be very detrimental for knowledge sharing. Therefore reflecting is this knowledge is to try to avoid individualistic culture in processes and support rewarding the sharing behavior with a sense of appreciation for those shared their experience, since they will lose their value in the company. Awareness of importance of KM is circular in here; therefore employees should fully understand the benefits and advantages of knowledge management that it is not taking experience but even add to their experience as well.
