Abstract

This is a cross-sectional survey study designed to explore the views of lecturers in three higher education institutions in Kuching on knowledge management practices in their organizations. The three higher education institutions were Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS), MARA University of Technology Sarawak (UiTMCS) and Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus. Questionnaires were used to collect data from the respondents
regarding the importance lecturers attached to knowledge management
and the levels of knowledge management implementation in the higher
education institutions. The findings revealed that most of the lecturers
at the higher education institutions felt that knowledge management
was important and the lecturers placed the levels of knowledge
management implementation at their institutions as moderate. There
was a significant but weak positive relationship between importance
attached to knowledge management and knowledge management
implementation. Findings also revealed that there were significant
differences in the importance attached to knowledge management
based on the lecturers’ gender and levels of education and a significant
difference in the perceived levels of knowledge management
implementation based on gender. However, there was no significant
difference in the perceived levels of knowledge management
implementation based on the lecturers’ level of education.
