Abstract: In a survey by the International Journal of Management Science, editors confirmed that “Knowledge Management(KM) continues to be a strong and viable research field” (King et al., 2006). Parallel to KM, Cross-cultural Management(CCM) has received considerable attention in the international business literature. To date, some researchers have concentratedon the relationship between KM and CCM, such as how to improve knowledge sharing in multi-national companies, or how to utilize knowledge effectively in international joint-ventures. However, there is another remaining aspect which describes a new culture created from the combination of two or many cultures. This new culture has been named as several terms, such as Cultural Synergy, Third Culture, Cultural Hybrid, or Cultural Intelligence. The purpose of this study is to better understand both aspects of the relationship between CCM and KM by providing an adequate definition of CCKM. Then, we use this definition to contribute to building a theoretical model of CCKM. Following that, implications and future research are then discussed.
