The concept of knowledge management(K.M) appeared in the world society, As Europe management conference supported by ILO adapts subject of "Knowledge management(forecast of new opportunity)". recently, Because knowledge management begins to be applied in the whole industrial field. knowledge management has been brought as a best practice that companies can improve and harden their own competitive power basically.
To make KM help for management place, the importance to managers recognition KM and emphasis on company competition are required the gap study of actual use level.
In this study, I will boundly recognition degree of knowledge competition importance with 4 factors, that is there are management renovation and knowledge ability factor, financial factor, customer values factor and inside processor factor.
I did gap analysis between actual competition and these factors.
when I did factor analysis of out side environment factors, that's results consist of complexity of competitive and cooperative companies, change speed of new goods and new tech, variety of customers and simplexity of demand expectation.
Then, I did again T-test of the results, The results of the analysis showed me that korea companies are much interested in KM, and it's appeared that KM is contributing to company competition.
If I conclude with the results of this study, we are interested in the word of KM but do not see the importance of KM. However we have a high level of competition advantages on the contrary korea companies are interested in the change of customer's desire, but don't come up with hold competition advantages so we'll be required much more interest and endeavor in KM and intelligence asset in the future. we find it's important to upgrade inside processor korea is engaged in personnel resource but has to be interested in knowledge share system like KM. In regard to customer value, the understanding of customer's desire has competition advantages and other factors are important nevertheless, we don't have competition of those.
