Abstract: This research was undertaken to ascertain the effect of knowledge management on the performance of Quoted Construction Firms in Nigeria. Knowledge creation, storage, sharing, and implementation constituted the indices for knowledge management while profitability, growth and survival were used as indices for performance. The research adopted the cross sectional survey design for the study. 5657 senior and middle level managers of the six Quoted Construction Firms in Nigeria constituted the population for the study and a sample size of 411 was taken using the Taro Yamen’s formula for sample size determination. A five scale Likert like closed-ended questionnaire was used in the collection of data for this study. The Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) via the instrumentality of the SPSS AMOS Version 20was used in the test of hypotheses. The study found that knowledge creation had significant effect on profitability but not on growth and survival; knowledge storage had significant effect on profitability, but not on growth and survival; knowledge sharing had significant effect on profitability, growth and survival and knowledge implementation had significant effect on profitability, growth and survival. It is recommended that the management of Quoted Construction Firms in Nigeria should designextra pay packages, sponsor knowledge creation initiatives, create knowledge repositories, encourage communities of practice, coaching and mentoring, and knowledge implementation. This can go a long way in ensuring improved work processes which translates into improved profits, ensures steady growth and facilitates survival.
