MAYNEZ GUADERRAMA, Aurora Irma. Culture and affective commitment: do they influence the internal knowledege transfer?. Contad. Adm [online]. 2016, vol.61, n.4, pp.666-681. ISSN 0186-1042.

In the new economy knowledge is recognized as a strategic asset and its transfer stands out as a relevant activity. Therefore, in this research effort we examine the influence of organizational culture and affective commitment on the internal transfer of knowledge; also, we analyze if organizational culture affects the affective commitment. For that, we conducted a cross-sectional survey in a nonrandom sample of 342 subjects working in the industrial sector located in the northern border of Mexico. A statistical analysis was performed using a structural equation model. The results confirm that organizational culture impacts positively and significantly over the internal transfer of knowledge and over the affective commitment. Furthermore, empirical evidence suggests that affective commitment has no effect on the internal transfer of knowledge.

Keywords : Knowledge; Organizational culture; Affective commitment; Internal knowledge transfer.
