between state and society, TTs could perform as knowledge bridge. TTs could be fruitful if they are managing their knowledge well and are better performing organizations, where performance goals
are aligned to their Organizational Strategy (OS). Moving towards knowledge era, realization of knowledge capital and its management have additional importance for knowledge intensive
organizations like TTs. An organization with a strategy to do policy research could make good use of Knowledge Management (KM) to enhance their dual impact to influence states policy and social
renewal. TTs effectiveness is its policy influence and efficiency is its social understanding. The studies contribution becomes more important for Pakistani context- an emerging economy, political instability, and social diversity.
