Abstract: In today’s knowledge-driven society and information economy, it is imperative to adopt knowledge management in an effort to overcome deficits in information and to be competitive. This study aimed to investigate the determinants of knowledge management (KM) adoption, as well as to assess the level of readiness for knowledge management (KM) adoption of Land Holding Registration and Information Agency (LHRIA). For this research, a research model which contains factors:-Strategy, Technology, Organization, People, Culture and Environment was used. After pre-tested, 127 questionnaires were distributed to head offices and its branches of LHRIA and 124 were returned. From the returned questionnaires, four were discarded during data screening phase. As a result, data from 120 respondents was analysed using partial least squares (PLS). Validity and reliability tests were conducted using Smart PLS version 3.0 software package as well descriptive and analytical statistical reports were generated. This study revealed factors that influence KM adoption. The revealed factors that have impacted KM adoption are Strategy (influence indirectly), Technology, People and Culture. Meanwhile, the factors that are not connected to KM adoption are Organization and Environment. In addition, Aydin and Tasci’s assessment model was used to provide better insights on the level of readiness of LHRIA for adopting KM. Based on the level of readiness of this assessment model, all factors in the model used in this study and significant for readiness for KM adoption have computed mean scores below the expected level of readiness (Mean (Melr) < 3.4). This implies the need for numerous improvements in Land Holding Registration and Information Agency in order to adopt KM. The results of this study can provide guidance to organisation’s when considering readiness and factors significant to implementing KM. In addition, this study advances the theory of adoption behavior and contributes to the foundation for future research aimed at improving my understanding of LHRIA and its employee’s behavior.
