Knowledge of organizations is a important source of value creation. Performance of corporations can be enhanced by acquiring knowledge via practicing job and sharing knowledge of engineers in organization.
This paper focuses on the importance of knowledge sharing. Several factors which affect knowledge sharing was developed from the case studies in the software industry. The most dominant factors are fair evaluation and proper compensation.
Because knowledge sharing mechanism without compensation can result in a equilibrium which is called "The Prisoners' Dilemma," the fair evaluation and proper compensation are essential. The fair evaluation is a prerequisite for proper compensation. Thus, in this paper, a prototype of evaluation mechanism was designed on the game theoretic perspectives by using revelation principle concepts. The main concept of the prototype is self revelation of quality, usefulness or contribution of his revealed knowledges. Self revealed score is compared with peer rating score. If the self revelation score is lower than peer rating, then self revelation score is accepted. But if higher, the self revealed score is subtracted from peer rating by excessed amount of self revealed score and peer rating score. This mechanism will have a equilibrium which truth-telling becomes a strictly dominated strategy.
