ABSTRACT

This paper deals with the impact analysis of determinants to knowledge management performance under the THINKFAIR (KMS brand name) of the Korea Fair Trade Commission along with the epistemology discourse of knowledge management. The model of twelve hypotheses is specified and tested through exploratory factor analysis(EFA) and partial confirmatory factor analysis(CFA) by using the SEM with AMOS. The determinants of knowledge management performance are organizational leadership, organizational competency, organizational culture, KMS network, and innovation management & maintenance activity. The findings show that those five independent variables are positively related to the performance of knowledge management in the total effect. First of all, organizational leadership and innovation management & maintenance activity of KMS are the most powerful factors of the determinants on the performance of knowledge management. Also, KMS network affects positively the performance of knowledge management. Organizational culture affects indirectly the performance of knowledge management via innovation management & maintenance activity and KMS network and shows a positive relation in the total effect. Finally, organizational competency shows a positive relation in the total effect via innovation management & maintenance activity and KMS network, while it affects negatively the performance of knowledge management. The major policy implications are to govern the five determinants of KMS in a configurational way and to develop the rational policy evaluation indicators of governmental knowledge administration along with the continuous epistemology discourse of knowledge management.
