This study aims to analyze the influence of the knowledge transfer which consists of variables socialization, externalization, combination, and internalization (SECI) towards the the performance of the headmaster at state high schools and state vocational high schools in South Sumatera Province, Indonesia. The population in this study were 255 headmasters of state high schools and state vocational high schools in South Sumatra Province of Indonesia where there were 167 responses collected by using nonprobability sampling and purposive sampling technique. The instrument in measuring the variables in this study was questionnaires which were distributed to respondents. Questionnaire validity and reliability tests were conducted on 30 headmasters of state junior secondary schools in Palembang city who were pilot tests out of the sample to be researched later by means of calculating if r-count > r-table, then the questionnaire items were valid and if the correlation coefficient was bigger than critical value, then the instrument is declared reliable. The testing of data normality and hypothesis test statistics is done with Structural Equation Modelling (SEM). The results showed that SECI which consists of socialization, externalization, combination, and internalization have a positive and significant effect on the performance of the headmaster. Separately, each variables of SECI, socialization and internalization have just a positive and significant effect. Whether, externalization and combination have not a positive and significant effect. Hopefully, the implications of this research can help to guide the headmasters about socialization, externalization, combination, and internalization in an effort to optimize the headmasters performance of each school.
