AbstractThe objectives of this research was to develop and examine the linear structure relationship of tacit knowledge management model of the firms with good practice in learning organization development.The research used mixed methodology, the qualitative and quantitative methods. The research was administered in 2 phases: Phase 1 used documentary research to construct a first draft model, and used qualitative research to develop the research model. Phase 2 used a survey research to examine the accordance of developed model from Phase 1. The data was collected by using a questionnaire. The research units were 10 firms which were recognized as the firms with good practice in development of learning organization. The research samples were 337 key informants, selected by using non-probability sampling in purposive sampling method.
The results of structural equation modeling development revealed that the model consisted of 5 latent variables and 22 observed variables. The research model developed by the researcher was consistent with the empirical data. (χ²=253.42, df=147, P-value=0.342, GFI=0.960, AGFI=0.931, RMSEA=0.011, CN=409.774). The total influenced values which found most affecting the firm’s performance were the tacit knowledge management processes and the technical perspective, obtained influenced values at 0.54 and 0.52 respectively. The total influence values which found most affecting the learning organization characteristics were the technical perspective and the social perspective, obtained influenced values at 0.56 and 0.39 respectively. The total influenced value which found most affecting the tacit knowledge management processes was the technical perspective, which obtained influenced value higher than the social perspective at 0.59 and 0.32 respectively. The analysis of structural equation found that the modeling factors could explain the discrimination power of the firm’s performance at 67 percents and could also predict the discrimination power of the two internal latent variables: the learning organization characteristics and the tacit knowledge management processes factors at 88 and 81 percents respectively.
