This research has analyzed the role of learning in an organization while measuring and managing sustainable organizational performance. Furthermore, our research has also included the intervening role of organizational networking and organizational innovation while analyzing the relationship between organizational learning and sustainable organizational performance. Our research has adopted a quantitative approach while using the survey method to collect data from 710 owners of the manufacturing sector belonging to the Small and Medium Enterprises SMEs operating in Laos. Informed consent was obtained from all participants for your research. Structure equation modeling SEM was used through partial least square PLS software to test the collected data's reliability and validity and test the hypothesis to meet the research objectives. The study's findings reveal that organizational learning is vital to organizational performance and success. Information sources (networks) moderate the relationship between innovation and organizational performance. Our findings confirm that innovation is disruptive if it is not well-informed and well-processed. The research concludes that organizational learning is very vital for sustainable organizational performance. The current research contributes to the body of knowledge by examining sustainable organizational performance from an entirely different perspective.
Achieving sustainable organizational performance is the prime objective of every organization. Achieving performance depends upon the critical performance indicators referred to as objective measures and is considered problematic . Sustainability nowadays is considered a vital element in gaining a competitive advantage and improving the innovative capacity of organizations . Managing and sustaining organizational performance has been one of the utmost important issues of organizational studies for decades. Different authors define organizational performance differently in performance literature . Although the authors suggest different definitions, most agree that performance can be determined by how efficiently and effectively a firm makes the most out of the least resources in given circumstances. Organizational outcomes are being measured on both the financial and non-financial yardsticks. The financial performance indicators are; return on investment, return on equity, sales volume, profit margins, and profit-to-revenue ratios. In contrast, the non-financial indicators of performance are internal customer/employee satisfaction, external customer satisfaction, environmental performance, and social performance.
Sustainable organizational performance depends upon the organizational ability to coop with the challenges of the internal and external environment. Most of the available research has focused on dealing with the internal environment of the organization and its pertinent factors. Many researchers have highlighted the importance of strengthening internal organizational factors to improve performance. Researchers believe that as the external factors are often beyond the organization’s control, managing or influencing them is beyond its locus of control. Hence, this research caters to internal and external factors, i.e., innovation, learning within the firm, learning from the external environment, and networking that can influence the firm’s performance.
Measuring, managing, and sustaining organizational performance is complex, and this has been a long-lasting issue yet to be fully explored by researchers and the management of organizations. The current research study has taken organizational innovation as a mediating variable between organizational learning and firm performance. If not converted into innovative practices and operations, organizational learning cannot help organizations achieve high performance. Organizational performance plays a decisive role in business success. Many factors affect organizational performance, such as market share, sales volume, profits, and internal factors, including organizational system improvements.
There are different approaches to measuring organizational performance. Innovation at the organizational level, including innovation in terms of new product/service development, organizational and marketing innovation, knowledge development, creative capabilities, and enhancing origination performance through innovation by differentiation, are a few organizations undertaking this. Current research measures organizational performance through organizational learning through innovation and networking. The current research finding suggests that organizational learning is essential to organizational performance. Learning from external networks and implementing that learning within the organizational network in innovation leads an organization toward better performance. Current research empirically tested the role of learning from external networks and implemented that learning in innovation within organizational networks facilitates better performance. Current research highlights the role of manufacturing SMEs in Laos as these SMEs significantly contribute to Laos’s GDP. Researchers can extend the study to other developing countries most likely share similar characteristics.
