—In the competitive world, companies have realized that knowledge can only create competitive advantage and sustain them among other companies. Moreover, the appropriate management of knowledge is necessary for companies to achieve competitive advantage. On the other hand, selecting the right knowledge management strategy can be the first step of reaching to this advantage. In this paper, knowledge management strategy (KM-ST) is developed for Iran Alloy Steel Company (IASCO) as a real case. To determine the KM-ST, the Tiwana's model is selected and adopted for IASCO. The model shows that the business strategy and knowledge management strategy should be alignment with together to create a great synergy. This study supports managers to apply the model for determination of proper KM-ST in other companies.
