Purpose: This paper aims to design and test a model that explains the effects of dimensions of institutional pressures and organizational culture on the utilization and development of knowledge management. Methodology: A descriptive research is conducted to investigate the relationship between variables under study. To collect data, questionnaires (α= 0.949) are randomly distributed among 178 employees of Mashhad Regional Electricity Company. The Structural Equation Modeling using maximum likelihood estimation is applied to test the hypotheses. Findings: The results reveal that while perceived institutional pressures positively affect the exploitation and development of knowledge management, organizational culture plays a mediatory role. Thus managing organizational knowledge requires attention to the effects of institutional pressures and the role of organizational culture.   Keywords: Knowledge Management, Institutional Pressures, Organizational Culture.
