Age, Gender and Culture as Correlates of Use of Knowledge Management Systems in Makerere University

Abstract

The purpose of the study was to establish which of (i) age (ii) gender and (iii) organizational culture is a correlate of use of knowledge management systems (KMS) among teachers, senior administrators and postgraduate students in Makerere University. The study was a co-relational and cross-sectional survey biased to the quantitative approach, involving 444 respondents from the University, from whom primary data were collected using a self-administered questionnaire, and analysed using summary statistics (e.g. means, standard deviations), t-test, Correlation and Multiple Regression Analyses. The study found that while age and gender were unimportant, organizational culture significantly correlated with KMS use among teachers, senior administrators and postgraduate students in the University. The study thus concluded that organizational culture must be improved if KMS use in Makerere University is to improve, leading to the recommendation that all stakeholders look into the possibility of improving organizational culture in the respective units in the University as a measure of enhancing KMS use.
