Knowledge management (KM) has been emerged as a significant organizational and management challenge in public administration. KM can help a public organization's technological and organizational innovations for a more effective operation. However, there are different views among practitioners and researchers on how a knowledge management program for public organizations can be successfully designed and implemented in western and eastern hemispheres. Thus, the objective of this study is empirically examining whether KM success attributes for public organizations in USA (western hemisphere) would be different than S. Korea (eastern hemisphere). From the results of statistical analysis, the differences success attributes for KM in USA and S. Korea were analyzed. The greatest differences exist in KM supportive culture and information systems capability while the least difference is in performance measurement.
