ABSTRACT

Knowledge management (KM) and organizational performance are believed to be essential of the success in business. The different results in literatures which declare KM affects organizational performance positively. But there are still some confusing relations between KM and organizational learning (OL). Accordingly, we propose some hypotheses to verify relationships among KM, organizational performance, and organizational learning (OL). Base on a sample of Taiwan knowledge-intensive firms engaged in manufacturing, and financial sectors, data are collected using a mail survey, and hypotheses are tested using structural equation modeling. This paper presents OL as a coordinating mechanism, and the results support it in these samples. Empirical evidence also supports the perspective that KM affects organizational performance through OL. This paper is one of the empirical supports for the role of OL as a mediator between KM and organizational performance. Therefore, the positioning of OL as a mediator is also an important contribution to our thinking on this topic.

    • "tem sido considerada uma variável estratégica para a obtenção de vantagens competitivas que sejam sustentáveis ao longo do tempo, com potencial para promover mudanças e para melhorar o desempenho em organizações (Garvin, 1993; Lipshitz et al., 1996; Hult et al., 1997; Calantone et al., 2002; Real et al., 2006; Bolívar- Ramos et al., 2012). Alguns estudos mostram que a AO está positivamente relacionada com o desempenho organizacional (Real et al., 2006; Liao & Wu, 2009; Bolívar-Ramos et al., 2012). Em sua pesquisa, Leopoldino e Loiola (2010), reforçam essa assertiva, demonstrando que a AO tem sido apontada como importante fator para o alcance e manutenção de bons níveis de desempenho organizacional.

    ABSTRACT: Este ensaio teórico tem por objetivo principal realizar uma reflexão sobre o papel da Cultura Organizacional (CO) na dinâmica de relacionamento entre a Aprendizagem Organizacional (AO) e as Tecnologias da Informação (TI), e compreender como este relacionamento influencia no desempenho organizacional em unidades hoteleiras. Nesse sentido, é proposto um modelo conceitual e são oferecidos os caminhos para validar empiricamente o modelo. Do ponto de vista metodológico, parte-se de uma revisão da literatura onde são discutidas as visões de diversos autores sobre os construtos e sobre as articulações entre eles. Com base nessa revisão é desenvolvido um modelo que contempla aspectos intrínsecos ao segmento da hotelaria e aspectos externos como localidade e o mercado onde se insere. Embora, separadamente, os construtos tenham sido amplamente discutido, até ao momento não foi identificada investigação que analisasse a articulação entre a CO, AO e as TI. Acredita-se que a cultura organizacional desempenha um papel crucial nos processos gerenciais que pode, direta ou indiretamente, influenciar o sucesso da implementação e do uso das TI e também facilitar a AO. Sendo assim, este estudo pretende contribuir para o conhecimento sobre a CO e sobre como os gestores, por meio de uma CO adequada, podem aumentar o valor das TI e melhorar o processo de AO, levando a um melhor desempenho organizacional.

    • "Knowledge identification is an action of discerning the location and value of knowledge, restraints to knowledge flow, and opportunities to leverage the value of knowledge (Zwain et al, 2012). Either looking at this perspective, knowledge can be identified by individual employees or organization (Liao & Wu, 2009). Knowledge identification can therefore be seen as the first stage of managing knowledge. "
