Knowledge and innovation are regarded as characteristics in the new knowledge economy era. Any organization should be able to manage knowledge and continuously innovate in order to present their competitive advantages. Under increasing market competition, enterprises depend more on innovation to enhance the competitiveness for survival and development. Organizational Innovation Climate therefore plays a critical role in the overall operation and activity performance. According to the previous research motives and purposes, this study aims to discuss the correlations between Organizational Innovation Climate and Knowledge Management.

Having eliminated invalid and incomplete questionnaires, a total of 348 valid copies are retrieved, with a retrieval rate of 54%. The empirical results show 1. Partially significant correlations between Knowledge Management and Corporate Culture, 2. Remarkable correlations between Corporate Culture and Organizational Innovation Climate, 3. Notable correlations between Knowledge Management and Corporate Culture, and 4. Mediating effects of Corporate Culture on Knowledge Management and Organizational Innovation Climate.
