Unaware Unethical Behavior and ‘Learning from Error’ through Knowledge Sharing
Keywords:unethical behaviour, fraudulant behaviour, knowledge sharing behaviour, error management, learning from error
The paper focus on fraudulent or unethical behaviors in which there is no awareness, reasoning, or intention, but an incorrect action that results from lack of knowledge in terms of action errors. Using error management framework, we focus on the potential positive effects of errors, to link the errors with the more general goal of learning. Literature has shown that errors are often related to communication failures and of sharing of information. To enrich our understanding about fraudulent or unethical behaviors, this article contributes to the extant literature by investigating how knowledge sharing behaviors impact on the process of learning from error within the firm, to preventing future fraudulent or unethical behavior. The study reports a case study for examining the characteristics of the knowledge sharing behaviors, and how these behaviors characteristics impact the process of learning from error within the organization, to preventing future fraudulent or unethical behavior
