Effective knowledge transfer among team members has been one of the crucial factors that can facilitate team knowledge innovation and enhance team knowledge accumulation.

The results show that network structure has significant effects on knowledge transfer within team. Large size, high density, greater centrality and wide content network can facilitate knowledge transfer among team members. Tie strength has significant effects on knowledge transfer within team.
