Structural equation modeling (SEM) via The Analysis of Moment Structures, i.e., IBM AMOS 22 was used in hypotheses testing. The results showed that knowledge management has a positive direct impact on both organizational learning and organizational performance. Organizational learning has a positive direct effect on organizational performance.
