Abstract


The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of knowledge management strategy and organizational learning capability on organizational performance with an emphasis on organizational innovation. The participants of the study include top, operational, and intermediate managers of an oil company. A 5-point Likert scale questionnaire was developed and used to collect data from 161 managers. Confirmatory factor analysis, correlation test, and path analysis were used for analysis. The results showed that knowledge management strategy has a positive and meaningful effect on organizational innovation and that innovation has a positive, direct and meaningful effect on organizational performance. However, organizational learning capacity does not have a meaningful relationship with organizational innovation.
