Publication Date



The purpose of this paper is to explore how managers transform human, renewal, and entrepreneurial capital through specific organizational learning practices into superior innovation performance. We draw implications for managing organizational learning and guiding companies on how to create innovation-based competitive advantages grounded in the human aspects of intellectual capital. The study is based on a survey of companies located in the transitional economy of Serbia. We found that human, renewal, and entrepreneurial capital all positively affect organizational learning practices. Furthermore, organizational learning practices contribute to innovation performance on their own and in combination with the tested human-based intellectual capital dimensions. The integration of fuzzy set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA) confirms a pattern of equifinality, as there are multiple combinations of static and dynamic conditions leading to superior innovation performance. This paper is among the first attempts to merge the disciplines of intellectual capital (IC) and knowledge management (KM) and combine symmetrical and asymmetrical techniques to determine which configurations may yield organizational benefits in terms of innovation performance outcomes.
