KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT DEVELOPMENT TO INCREASE RESEARCH PRODUCTIVITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION
This study aims to identify the effect of the Knowledge Management process on research productivity in higher education. This research uses mixed methods with a sequential explanatory design. The analysis was carried out in two stages, the first stage was quantitative analysis using multiple regression analysis. The research participants were 112 lecturers who worked in several private higher education institutions in Indonesia. The second stage is a quantitative analysis using a triangulation approach and focus group discussion (FGD). The results of the study show that Knowledge Management processes have a significant positive effect on research productivity. Where from the three components of the Knowledge Management process studied, namely knowledge acquisition, sharing, and utilization, all of them were identified as having been able to make a clear contribution to the intended target. In addition, it was revealed that facilitating access to knowledge, support for research budgets, routine agendas of sharing knowledge, and cross-disciplinary collaboration are the main factors driving research productivity.
