A cross-sectional survey design was adopted using both qualitative and quantitative approaches. From a target population of 170 firms, 83 firms were drawn to form the sample for the study. Data was collected through questionnaires where a response rate of 86.7 % was attained. Using linear regression analysis and analysis of variance, Null hypothesis was tested with the results indicating a moderate and positive linear relationship at statistically significance levels R = 0.415, R2 = 0.172, p value = 0.000. It was therefore concluded that knowledge management is a predictor of competitive advantage in medium and large garment companies in Kenya.
