In the past 10 years, the concept of knowledge management and in particular, the aspects of information technology, intellectual capital, and people management, has received wide attention from academics and practitioners. An organizational culture containing openness and incentive themes successfully facilitates the integration of individual competencies (including skills, knowledge and experiences) into organizational knowledge through learning and knowledge creating and sharing. In this paper we begin with a discussion of data, information, and knowledge, knowledge management and knowledge management system trends. Then the relationship between organizational culture and knowledge management is presented and this relationship was showed as a conceptual model by dividing knowledge management into four parts. And in a case study in Iran firms we found these correlations.
