Abstract [en]

The paper investigates the identifying of best practices in Saudi Arabia. We adopted an established theoretical framework that is used as a basis for developing questions for the study. In Saudi Arabia, there are efforts for sharing best practices that can be viewed a positive step forward. Interviews were held with selected informants at a number of large companies. The results from the interviews that analyzed and the analysis showed that organizations are not acquainted with the formal BP framework. They linked identification of BP to documented practices, to communities of knowledge, or to specific publications. We suggested that a BP team can obtain some direction toward evaluating and sharing candidate best practice. Hence, we propose that a contribution of best practices from an online network of best practices is a recommended most useful approach for supporting the collaboration between promoting the sharing of knowledge between business enterprises.
