Abstract

In most recent years, knowledge management (KM) has become a mainstream business focus in various sectors such as automobile manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries. This research attempts to contribute to the research and knowledge surroundings, by highlighting the importance of using knowledge management for pharmaceutical innovation. Therefore, the primary aim of this study is to highlight the effective role of knowledge management in the pharmaceutical innovation. Keywords: innovation; KIF; knowledge-intensive firm; knowledge management; pharmaceutical industry; RBV; resource-based view; SCA; sustainable competitive advantages. Reference to this paper should be made as follows: (2016) `: why does pharmaceutical industry need knowledge management?', Int. J. Knowledge Management Studies, Vol. 7, Nos. 3/4, pp.288­304. Biographical note: Elham Elshafie Mohamed has obtained her PhD in Knowledge Management from Cairo University, Egypt shared with Keele University in the UK.
