This study aims to understand the antecedents of knowledge sharing behavior amongst tenant firms in Science and Technology Parks (STPs) which has been highlighted as a key factor for the development of an epistemic culture of innovation in STPs. Components of a model of knowledge management leadership with a focus on knowledge sharing and innovative value creation in STPs are developed inspired by the work of Nonaka, Nahapiet and Ghoshal, Guns and others. Collection of data on various relevant measures is ongoing, covering technology firms and STPs in Singapore and other Asian countries. Besides outlining model components and hypotheses, tentative findings of qualitative interviews and survey work (with a focus on KM leadership in SingaporeÆs STPs) are presented aimed at identifying strategic ingredients for the creation of intelligent STPs with a conducive culture of R&D works and innovation as well as synergistic collaboration between tenant firms.
