The Influence of Authentic Leadership and Strategic Management Skills on Organization Performance Mediated by Knowledge Management at TNI Academy

Wisnu Pramandita, Dadan Umar, Dedie S. Martadisastra, Rowlan Takaya


This study aims to analyze the influence of Authentic Leadership and Strategic Management Skills on Organizational Performance mediated by Knowledge Management at the Indonesia Armed Force (TNI) Academy. This study tested seven hypotheses with structural equation modeling using the LISREL Ver.8.7 application. The sample of this research is 304 personnel of the TNI Academy.

The results of this study found six hypotheses were accepted and one hypothesis was rejected. The rejected hypothesis was the direct influence of Strategic Management Skills on Organizational Performance. While the hypothesis of the indirect effect of Strategic Management Skills on Organizational Performance through Knowledge Management is acceptable. This means that Knowledge Management is an intervening variable that is very important for the implementation of increasing Strategic Management Skills.

The results of this study encourage policy and managerial decision-makers within the TNI Academy to implement Knowledge Management optimally to maximize the impact on Organizational Performance from policy implementation and managerial decisions to improve Authentic Leadership and Strategic Management Skills. The novelty of this study is that Strategic Management Skills do not have a significant effect on Organizational Performance at the TNI Academy, giving different results from the theory in general. This can be overcome by implementing Knowledge Management properly in the TNI Academy.
