Abstract

This thesis explores the relationship between shared knowledge of senior executives and organizational performance. The senior executives in question in this work are the CEO and CIO. The work in this thesis is considered to be exploratory due to the use of some new scales to measure constructs and the new format of use for previously established scales. The hopes of this research are primarily to create enough evidence, through correlation evaluation, to generate further research in the stream using similar or the same concepts. Further, the method used to establish correlation was non-parametric, Spearman's Rank Correlation Coefficient, primarily due to the exploratory sized sample and secondly due to its ability to show the degree or correlation between variables. Results of the statistical analysis are that overall the sample relied primarily on separate function to perform the strategic activities of capability identification, governance and environmental analysis, yet only environmental analysis was the only function where higher degrees of shared knowledge had no effect on firm performance.
