A conceptual model will be proposed on a way describing organization to improve quality of knowledge work productivity. The methodology begins with a reviewing a theoretical foundation and expert review that provides the scientific basis for knowledge work productivity specifically for software development. A questionnaire will be constructing in order to investigate the relationship between factors of knowledge work and quality of productivity on knowledge work. The respondents are software developers from Small Manufacturing Enterprise(SME). The data will be analyzed using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) to identify the significant direct relationship effect among the factors. The proposed model will be helpful for the software developers to understand the determinant factors for knowledge works productivity.
