by Rodriguez, Mark, D.M., University of Phoenix, 2021, 144; 28318962
Abstract (Summary)

This study aimed at investigating the relationships between organizational factors against Total KM Value, to infer the importance of highlighting urgency to fund organizational knowledge management (KM) programs. The problem this study focused was the gap on value-based KM framework considerations literature to sustain funding for organizations' KM programs. The study used participants from the KM community of practice from the Knowledge Management Institute (KMI). The correlation analysis quantitative method was used, and a Nominal Logistics Regression (NLR) test was used from the statistical tool Minitab. The results of the test provided that five of six hypothesis tests were able to reject the null hypothesis that there was no significant relationship between selected organizational factors and the organization's Total KM Value. The factors used as the terms to measure against the Total KM Value were: (1) Organizational Type NPO/FPO; (2) Employee Population; (3) Annual Revenue; (4) Market Capitalization; (5) Type of KM Support Used; (6) KM Strategy Used/No KM Strategy Used. The population of the KMI membership roster which was the intended audience for this study was estimated at 6,150 members, and a sample size for this study used was 362 participants. This sample were the subscribers to the KMI Linkedin group which likely work in KM positions or have subscribe to the KMI Linkedin group for awareness of KM information. This study may provide the information that can create further knowledge around the KM practice for leaders to highlight the specific importance of a Value-Based KM Framework.
