Nowadays, knowledge sharing has become a strategic source of gaining and preserving competitive advantage. Acquiring this advantage requires solutions and approaches that make the organizations capable of measuring their knowledge sharing capabilities. The initial goal of this paper is to present an applied model for measuring the knowledge sharing capability through the identification of the most approved and practical measurement indicators in this area. In the next step, there has been an attempt to statistically validate and localize the indicators and keep those indicators, which are sufficiently able to measure the knowledge sharing capability by the approval of the experts in the field. Afterwards, the final model has been evaluated in three public universities of Iran, namely Sharif University of Technology, University of Tehran and Amir Kabir University of Technology for identifying the strengths and weaknesses of each university and specifying knowledge sharing capability and the path for improving quality of knowledge management in these universities. Finally, a set of guidelines and future research directions has been provided for interested practitioners and scholars.
