This study aims at exploring the relationships between knowledge activity, knowledge activity performance, and organizational performance. By adopting the balanced scorecard perspective, organizational performance was measured by product/service, customer and internal performances. Using data collected from the 36 Korean firms, this study found that knowledge creation activity was positively and significantly related to the organizational performance such as product/service performance, customer performance and internal performance. We also found that knowledge activity performance such as knowledge quality and user knowledge satisfaction mediated the positive relationship between knowledge sharing activity and internal performance.
