Abstract


This paper examines the role of HR practices in shaping open innovation outcomes using the competency, motivation and opportunity (CMO) model. The paper investigates the aforesaid associations by considering the intervening roles of learning organisation culture and knowledge sharing. The data were collected from managers working in different sectors in the United Kingdom, and structural equation modelling was used to analyse the data. The findings reveal positive linkages between the different types of HR practices studied and establish the mediating mechanisms of organisational learning culture and knowledge sharing. This study contributes to the current body of knowledge by developing and empirically testing an integrated open innovation model at the intersection of four broad areas – strategic HRM, organisational learning, knowledge management, and innovation management. By identifying processes that can enhance the chances of success in the open innovation paradigm, this study can assist managers in better designing their strategies.
