The cultural habits of an organization affect the way in which it manages knowledge. This research aimed to determine the influence that corporate culture has on the use of knowledge management techniques and technologies in organizations. In this article, four types of corporate culture are identified and the preferred knowledge management techniques and technologies within each culture type are indicated and briefly examined. It is concluded that since corporate cultures approach knowledge management differently, knowledge management tools and techniques that are implemented successfully in one organization, might fail in another owing to the influence corporate culture has on the use of these techniques and technologies.
