Abstract

While the drive towards profit is a distinctive and the most dominating objective of every business, environmental issues are currently putting growing pressure on organisational models. This paper examined the implication of knowledge management- acquisition, distribution, and utilization- on innovativeness in selected manufacturing firms in north-central Nigeria. Data was gathered through the use of structured questionnaire. Multiple regression technique was employed to test the research hypothesis. The study established knowledge management to have a significant effect on organizational innovativeness and recommended that the management of entrepreneurial firms should look at adopting team-focused approaches especially for task implementation to facilitate idea sharing and performance.

Keywords: Knowledge Management, Innovation, Sustainability, Manufacturing Firms
