Organizational Culture and Intellectual Capital System

According to Stewart (1997), intellectual capital (IC) consists of information, intellectual property, intellectual material, knowledge and experience that can be utilized to create wealth.
Schein (1984) defined organizational culture as a pattern of basic assumptions. These assumptions may facilitate or hinder information flow between organizational stakeholders both inside and outside organization.

Organizations nowadays put strong emphasis on the successful knowledge management of intellectual capital in order to improve their organization performance through knowledge sharing activities by transferring individual IC to organizational IC.

Should organizations develop a knowledge management system that fits with their organizational culture, rather than trying to change their cultures to fit their knowledge management objectives?
