This study has the aim to identify the existence of significant relations between knowledge management, leadership styles and the strategy design and implementation. The research works with a sample of 78 top managers of small and medium-sized firms in northern Chile. The results show that the transformational and transactional leadership have a positive impact on the strategy design quality. In addition, the knowledge creation and application are a significant determinant in the strategy quality; as well the strategy design is a decisive determinant to the strategy implementation. Therefore, the leadership styles and the knowledge management are relevant to achieve better results in the strategy design and implementation in small and medium-sized firms.

Palabras llave : Knowledge management; leadership; strategy design and implementation.
