    Abstract

    This paper investigates the interface between organizational learning capability, entrepreneurial orientation and small business performance. It reports on the findings from 350 SMEs in North Cyprus operating in the services and retailing sectors. The findings indicate a positive relationship between entrepreneurial orientation and sales and market share growth, but not between entrepreneurial orientation and employment growth. There is also a positive relationship between organizational learning capability and entrepreneurial orientation. This paper contributes to the small business management literature by providing a holistic analysis of the interface between organizational learning capability, entrepreneurial orientation and growth.
