Abstract: Using a knowledge-based perspective, this study examines how knowledge management processes influence reducing the strategic drift and then looks into the moderating role of knowledge leverage strategies. The research discovered a considerable favourable influence of knowledge management processes on reducing strategic drift. The evaluation also indicated that knowledge leverage strategies have a substantial moderating effect on reducing the strategic drift, particularly its effect on reducing the absence of strategic planning. The study's importance originates from the paucity of research on knowledge management processes and studies on knowledge leverage tactics as a predictor of reduced strategic drift. Additionally, there has been little research on the impact of knowledge leverage techniques on the relationship between knowledge management practices and strategic drift. This research is one of the earliest to look into these interconnections.

Keywords: knowledge leverage; knowledge management processes; strategic drift.
