Abstract:
Transition to the information society, mainly the private sector, as well as government universities have faced new opportunities for improving effectiveness and efficiency. However the pre requisite of efficiency and effectiveness is that any organizational decision should be based on appropriate knowledge. Unfortunately knowledge, which is regarded as the most influential source of power, if not shared and adopted, remains stale. Knowledge transfer which involves learning from those who have the competencies and applying what is learnt is the way to go. This study, cross sectional in nature investigated the effect of Information Communication Technologies on knowledge transfer success among information workers in higher institutions of learning. Results confirmed a positive significant relationship between Information Communication Technologies knows how and knowledge transfer. This is an indication that higher institutions of learning should not only spend on Information Communication Technologies infrastructure and Information Communication Technologies usage but invest substantially in training information workers in Information Communication Technologies.
