Effects of Capacity Knowledge Management and Entrepreneurial Orientation on Organizational Effectiveness in the Best Tunisian Companies: Moderating Role of Social Capital

This research addresses the question of explaining the organizational effectiveness of the company through the knowledge management capacity, entrepreneurial orientation, social capital and innovation. Researchers still do not adequately understand the relationship between these phenomena and the nature of their effects on organizational effectiveness. This research uses data obtained from a sample of 150 Tunisian companies to test a complex model of knowledge management capacity and entrepreneurial orientation, assuming that the level of social capital plays a moderating role on the effects of entrepreneurial orientation and the knowledge management capacity on organizational effectiveness. Using structural equations, the proposed model is tested and data analysis reveals that there is a significant relationship between independent variables and organizational effectiveness.

Understanding of Knowledge from Economist’s Perspective

Author’s approach to knowledge is based on the system of upgrading between knowledge as information, cognitive process, capital and a value. Knowledge cannot exist without it’s subject to whom the capacity of cognition is ascribed. Cognitive capacity is bounded due to imperfect information and the limits of the human mind and is becoming with individual’s inclusion into the society socially contingent. Primarily knowledge represents an investment into an individual who can only through social capital fully employ the human capital acquired for oneself. Through organizational routines and practices individual knowledge is also increasingly spilling over to other users of knowledge causing organization to become an important carrier of knowledge. Organizations are therefore devoting more attention to systematic knowledge management as a tool for boosting intellectual capital which represents understanding of knowledge as capital in its full meaning. Knowledge as capital cannot be fully understood without a more profound grasp of freedom through which knowledge becomes a value.
