          Abstract

          We examined the moderating effect of team internal social capital in the relationships among professional heterogeneity, experience heterogeneity, and thinking heterogeneity (3 dimensions of knowledge heterogeneity) and team knowledge sharing. The study sample comprised 149 teams of employees of companies in China. Results of a multiple regression analysis showed that professional heterogeneity, experience heterogeneity, and thinking heterogeneity all had a significantly positive effect on knowledge sharing. Further analysis demonstrated that internal social capital moderated the effect of experience heterogeneity on knowledge sharing, as well as that of thinking heterogeneity on knowledge sharing. Implications of our findings and future research directions are discussed.
