Abstract

The purpose of this study is to identify Knowledge Management (KM) dominant success factors in an academic institute. In today's competitive business environment, KM is increasingly recognized as a significant factor in gaining a competitive advantage. To obtain such competitive advantage, companies must know how to manage organizational knowledge effectively and optimize the knowledge processes within an organization. KM success factors have been investigated in many studies, but there has been no sufficient examination of the dominant success factors of KM in academic institution. There is a need to find dominant factors that can be used to make an accurate assessment of the KM success or effectiveness. A model for KM in academic institution that based on Structural Equation Model is constructed at the end of the study. The proposed model contributes to a better identification of KM dominant success factors; and enables managers of academic institution to have a better understanding of how to improve the management of knowledge in their institution.
