Knowledge Management, Market Orientation, Innovativeness and Organizational Outcomes: a Study on Companies Operating in Brazil Outros Idiomas

This article analyzes the study of the relationship among knowledge management, the company’s market orientation, innovativeness and organizational outcomes. The survey was conducted based on a survey held with executives from 241 companies in Brazil. The evidence found indicates that knowledge management directly contributes to market orientation, but it requires a clearly defined strategic direction to achieve results and innovativeness. It was also concluded that knowledge, as a resource, leverages other resources of the company, while it requires a direction in relation to the organizational goals in order to be effective.
