This article covers research conducted on communication, knowledge sharing and computer-mediated knowledge sharing, relating to organizations functioning in the South African environment. Research data was collected using an HTML based e-mail questionnaire distributed in an answer-ready format. Results were obtained in an analysis-ready format via e-mail responses, after which the obtained data were analysed, using simplified statistical techniques. Though the results cannot be generalized due to a lack of respondents, they do give an indication of knowledge sharing perceptions in the associated organizations. The results function as an introduction into further research regarding computer-mediated knowledge sharing in the South African context and may be used to engage in further in-depth research into the specific field of computer-mediated knowledge sharing as a sub-section of knowledge management processes.
