dc.description.abstract Electronic readiness as a global agenda and is not entirely a new concept, but e-readiness for knowledge management at the organizational level is still in its infancy (Eric Lou, 2010). In this study, an advanced state of organizational e-readiness is needed for a business to expand domestically and internationally to compete readily in the global open market. It is therefore, Organizations must be readily prepared to adopt new Information based system, and be prepared to leverage information technology for knowledge management in order to gain competitive advantage and improve business efficiency. It is explored by different researcher that r-readiness for knowledge management has the ability to transform the society in to more modern ways of thinking.However, many organization failed in adopting it. A primary reason for failure is the lack of assessment of organizational readiness. To reduce failure risk, Organization should assess their readiness for adopting knowledge management e-readiness to identify some weak points which have to be improved by taking some improvement action. This paper is adopting an approach based on the STOPE “strategy, technology, organization, people, and environment " framework for conducting e-readiness assessments. The approach views the previous literature on e-readiness assessment through the eye of the STOPE domains, providing an integrated framework of the factors that has been taken into account in such assessments. In the meantime, the approach also keeps the light on adding and integrating other potential factors. Based on SmartPLS 3 Statistical software estimating the complex cause-effect model using collated data from questionnaires to test the hypothesized relationships to assess the knowledge management e-readiness of commercial bank of Ethiopia in order to gauge a company’s appetite for the work involved before implementing the knowledge management system. The result finding shows that variable from the main factor strategy to the lowerfactor Organization are identified and improvement forwarded based on strength and weakness of the bank in connection with Knowledge management e readiness en_US
