The current tougher competition has established the leading role of knowledge as the capital in order to gain competitive advantage. Knowledge has become significant resources to the company to innovate continuously. Knowledge is embedded in the employees and created by the employees as well; therefore, the companies' ability to innovate will depend on its employee's knowledge sharing behavior and absorptive capacity. This study develops a conceptual model to explain the relationship between knowledge sharing and absorptive capacity influenced by moderating variables, namely organizational factor and technology factor. Knowledge sharing which consists of donating and collecting knowledge is considered to have influence towards the employee's motivation and ability. The two moderating variables considered in this study are top management support from organizational factor and information and communication use from technology factor.
