Summary/Abstract: The paper discusses different approaches to the problems of knowledge transfer. Factors that influence cross-cultural knowledge transfer are presented. It can be argued that the impact of national culture on the transfer of knowledge is less than the influence of such elements of the transfer process as the number of channels used, the source’s willingness to share knowledge, the sender’s willingness to acquire knowledge, the absorption capacity of the receiver and to what degree knowledge resources are transformed.
