This study fills an urgent gap in need of a complete picture of the complicated relationships between organizational traits and Knowledge Management approaches amid Lahore's traditional financial institutions, Pakistan. This research relates to studying how risk management, innovation strategies or decision-making styles affect the knowledge environment within these firms. This paper adopts a positivist philosophy for research and is combined with the use of quantitative methods. Smart PLS software is used to perform Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) on the data obtained. Responses came from a sample of 380 bank managers, comprising the dataset used for analysis. These results suggest that there are some areas in which organizational interventions aimed at knowledge management could be especially effective (e.g., the strong and reliable positive relationships between insights into how organizations use information, competitive strategy, decision-making styles, innovativeness, and risk management). The following results, through verifying and elaborating upon these existing conceptual frameworks while at the same time providing practical applicability for participants in this specific field of study, also serve to add depth theory side of knowledge management. This will provide us with a better understanding of Knowledge Management processes in many kinds of organizations. Because this research makes use of cross-sectional data, the capacity to establish causal relationships between variables is limited. It is a key study for organizations, employees, executives, and policy makers.
