“Knowledge transfer” or “Knowledge sharing” is considered an important strategic issue among the partner firms in today’s globalized business ventures. In a trans-border or transcontinental business relation, cultural dimensions are important factors for success or failure of these ventures. Culture plays an important role in various management issues including “Knowledge transfer” among the business partners of international ventures such as offshore outsourcing or International joint ventures. However, there is very scarce literature dealing with the organizational learning & knowledge transfer from the international and cross-cultural point of view. With the critical literature review method, this paper tries to shed light on cultural effects on knowledge transfer process, challenges and strategies of knowledge transfer in cross-cultural context.
