Abstract
In the present paper we examine the different ways of knowledge sharing in the contemporary business environment. In order to do this, we need to divorce R from D in R&D. For the purpose of this paper we distinguish four types of knowledge and correspondingly we introduce four metaphors of knowledge sharing: the four knowledge restaurants. In buffets ready-made knowledge is offered for self-service; there are restaurants in which the knowledge broker fulfils the role of the waiter offering a la cart menus; in some very expensive restaurants we can try what is recommended by the chef; finally, we sometimes make our own coffee in the coffee room and, obviously, have a chat along.
