Knowledge is increasingly recognized as one of the most critical resources in the modern workplace, because the way knowledge is learned, shared and used determines organizational innovation and effectiveness. In this dissertation, we build on construal level theory to explore the relationship between the structure of workers’ roles and the types of knowledge that workers create and share. In particular, we draw upon two features of the modern workplace that are evolving dramatically – the increasing use of technology and changing hierarchical structures – to explore how the level of abstraction at which employees mentally represent their work roles mediates the relationship between these structural features of the work context and the practically-relevant and important employee behaviors underlying innovation. We leverage methodological diversity to test the hypotheses in several studies, including studies based on archival data, experiments and longitudinal studies based on survey data. [less ▲]
