The Role of Knowledge Management (KM) Strategies in Enhancing Non-Governmental Organizations' (NGOs’) Performance: A Case Study in Palestine

The purpose of this study is to investigate the role of knowledge management strategies in enhancing NGOs’ performance. Descriptive research is followed in this study as well as a quantitative methodology design based on an electronic questionnaire survey to collect data. The research population consists of a total of 1,200 local and international NGOs that are active throughout the Palestinian Territories. A total number of 291 questionnaires were distributed to managers of NGOs or their representatives a total of 228 responses were received. The validity and reliability of the collected data were evaluated, which was used for statistical analysis. The researcher used SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Science) version 25.00 to evaluate these hypotheses. The research results demonstrate that the knowledge management strategies of “codification” and “personalization” are significantly affecting the selected NGOs' performance indicators in Palestine in terms of financial sustainability, organization process/function, and program/project performance. However, the hypothesis of the impact of the codification strategy on financial sustainability was dropped from the model due to a lack of significance. The study recommends that decision-makers in NGOs in Palestine should apply knowledge management strategies as a means of increasing organizational performance.
