ABSTRACT
Upon entering to no boundaries environments, the organizations are faced with a plurality of data and information that gradually leads them to strategic problems and confusions. These conditions remind the managers and policy maker, the necessity of implementing an organizational change program not just a technique to avoid such a crisis. The program is called knowledge management; that of course the requirement of its strategy-driven deployment, has introduced this organizational program beyond a technique. A successful program of knowledge management as a strategy needs to some preparations that necessarily techniques to improve the performance or management modes (such an empire in a new community) as a tool in the hand of managers, aren't depend on it. This paper explores the relation between the organizational structure arguments as an independent variable and knowledge management strategy as the dependent variable that include two main activities such as production and distribution of knowledge. Infrastructure of the organizational structure consists of three dimensions: complexity, centralization and formalization. Therefore, the results obtained by addressing the corresponding relationships between the mentioned variables that confirm the necessity of infrastructure for the implementation of knowledge management strategy.
