چکیده مقاله

s that the first step to enter the world of knowledge management is analyzing different knowledge management (KM) approaches. Then it would be essential to identify knowledge management gaps, because organizations weakness at identifying and bridging these gaps before implementing knowledge management plans will obviously lead to unreasonable effects. In this paper, at first, a summary of knowledge management concept and the necessity of its implementation in organizations are presented. Also, a comparison has been made between R&D expenditure and revenue and profitability of the global leading companies. In the next section, the knowledge production rank of Iran among 16 countries is presented in order to demonstrate Irans position according to knowledge growth. Then KM approaches including mechanistic, systemic, core competencies and behavioral-cultural and two models of knowledge management gaps including Pierce and Lovrichs (1984) and Lins (2005) model are discussed. In conclusion, the priority of adopting systematic, behavioral/cultural & core competencies approaches in contrast to traditional mechanistic approach is discussed. It is also mentioned that the 1st model is appropriate to be applied in macro level where as it will be appropriate to apply the 2nd model in micro level.
