Abstract

Operasi dalam bidang perindustrian pada masa kini tidak terkecuali daripada dilanda permasalahan yang berkaitan dengan bidang tersebut. Keadaan ini telah memberi tekanan kepada organisasi untuk terus proaktif mencari penyelesaian berterusan bagi menangani permasalahan yang timbul agar organisasi dapat kekal berdaya saing selain meningkatkan prestasi. Sehubungan dengan itu, kajian ini dijalankan untuk mengkaji hubungan pengurusan pengetahuan terhadap orientasi keusahawanan dalam kalangan pekerja firma Jepun.  Kaedah kuantitatif telah diterapkan dalam kajian ini dengan menggunakan soal selidik penyelidikan yang telah disahkan oleh pakar daripada industri dan akademik. Populasi kajian terdiri daripada pekerja yang bekerja di salah sebuah firma Jepun yang beroperasi di Malaysia. Jumlah responden yang terlibat adalah seramai 477 orang daripada keseluruhan pekerja yang berjumlah 1532 orang, dan semua responden bagi kajian ini telah dipilih secara rawak. Kadar tindak balas keseluruhan sebanyak 47.7 peratus telah diperoleh. Analisis regresi berganda digunakan untuk menganalisis data untuk memastikan semua andaian yang diperlukan dipenuhi. Hasil kajian menunjukkan bahawa ketiga-tiga hipotesis mempunyai kesan positif yang signifikan terhadap orientasi keusahawanan. Dari segi implikasi, kajian ini menyumbang kepada bidang keusahawanan di negara yang membangun dan meningkatkan pengetahuan mengenai kesan pengurusan pengetahuan terhadap orientasi keusahawanan kepada pertumbuhan firma (khususnya firma pembuatan).
