In this paper I compose a comprehensive model for knowledge management cluster to verify the impact and the effect of knowledge between individual knowledge and innovation and organization knowledge. In order to study the effects and establish a based view it is generally accepted that knowledge and innovation play a basic role in organizational development. Knowledge management base, cultural barriers and innovation outcomes from a sample of 115 Albanian’s organizations. This paper presents a new development and the organizational culture management to knowledge management, also proposed a comprehensive model which is designed from analysing culture only in terms of its positive and negative influences on knowledge management. The model suggests a typology of knowledge management clusters that organizations are likely to be focused on depending on the culture that prevails in an organization and identifies a reengineering, reorientation and a re-evolution.
