However, social innovation is very much connected with pure social aspects.

The data for this study were also obtained through face-to-face interview sessions with the academic, industry and community actors within the partnership projects. These data were collected from the period of May 2016 till October 2016. The data was analysed by using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 19 software and the content of the interviews data was validated by experience and expert qualitative researchers within the respective field. The findings of this study indicate a significant positive relationship between strategic knowledge management processes and social innovation. Further, hyphotheses testing results also demonstrated that socialization towards leveraging new knowledge resource, ability to transform and absorb new knowledge resource, ICT skills and knowledge and selection process of actors is somewhat needs serious improvements. Furthermore, syncronization of missions, objectives and priorities, high bureaucracy practices, business disclosures issues, innovation specification requirements issues, understanding and commitment issues and financial constraints issues must be dealt with accordingly so that can provide improvements and added value to the existing policy and procedures.
