PREDICTIVE ROLE OF KNOWLEDGE CULTURE AND INNOVATION CULTURE ON NON-FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
The aim of the research presented in this study was testing the correlation of knowledge and innovation culture and non-financial performance indicators (NFPIs), the predictive role of independent variables knowledge and innovation culture in NFPIs and differences between dependent and independent variables between micro, small and medium size companies. The study included 124 Serbian MSMEs, that voluntarily responded to 40 questions, presenting the research instrument. Statistical data analysis showed that a significant correlation exists between dependent and independent variables, that knowledge and innovation culture predict NFPIs with 33.4% and that there are differences in innovation culture and NFPIs, but not knowledge culture between companies grouped according to size. The conclusion of the study is that innovation and knowledge culture are of high importance for MSMEs, due to their predictive role in NFPIs, which are most often used, according to literature findings, for the assessment of their long-term success and sustainability. This study also revealed that the highest level of innovation culture and NFPIs is in micro companies in Serbia.
