Abstract

This paper was developed keeping in view a holistic model which successfully integrates not only the knowledge indicators, but also the implementation of knowledge creation at workplace. Today, knowledge plays a vital role in an organization, where minimization of other resources has been accomplished. Traditional functioning has changed into knowledge functioning in sharing, documenting, acquiring, transferring and applying knowledge and fostering knowledge creation within the employees. The knowledge creation has helped the organizations to make themselves distinct from other organizations. The ability to create new knowledge is often at the heart of the organizations’ competitive advantage. Sometimes, this issue is not treated as a part of knowledge management since it borders and overlaps innovation management. In this paper, four indicators of knowledge creation are reviewed and integrated. The paper looks at how the knowledge indicators can enhance knowledge creation in the employees. The results reveal that the four indicators of knowledge management have an impact of 70% on knowledge creation.
