This result leads to the key conclusion that IDRMII invests knowledge mainly in improving its excellent performance, as well as exploring knowledge and creating the knowledge and its participation in the overall processes aimed at enhancing this performance in a synergistic manner. The findings also show the interest of IDRMII in its excellent performance and instinct to employ strategic knowledge management; more especially, when IDRMII invests knowledge after exploring it, makes strategic meaning about it, and shares knowledge in that interest.
