Abstract

Knowledge Management (KM) has recently played a significant role in many organizations, particularly construction industry. There are many challenges influencing knowledge sharing and implementation due to the steadily increasing speed with which new technologies are evolving. These always require new or updated knowledge and allow new working practices. The purpose of this paper is to identify the relevant key success factors that affecting KM implementation in the construction industry in Libya. Based on the finding of the literature, a model of a key success factors is proposed and validated. Top management support, knowledge sharing were found significant predictors of knowledge management implementation. These findings could provide some implications for the practitioners and researchers that are interesting in the KM implementation and for KM system design.
