Resumé

In the last twenty years a growing number of empirical studies tested the association be-tween organizational learning capability (OLC) and various economic outcomes. While these studies have provided a better understanding of these relationships, the literature is characterized by the use of several OLC conceptualizations and measures as well as inconclusive empirical find-ings for the direction and magnitude of the association between OLC and different organization-al outcomes. Therefore, it remains unclear to what extent OLC influences these outcomes and whether the results vary across different measures. Based on 53 studies (13,663 firms), we (a) provide a systematic overview of the most commonly used OLC measures, (b) use meta-analytic techniques to highlight the relevance of OLC for firm innovativeness (ruc = .39) and firm perfor-mance (ruc = .41), and (c) explore the unique and common effects of individual OLC dimensions for different OLC measures. The findings provide guidance for researchers and practitioners con-cerning the relevance and dimensionality of the OLC construct and offer directions for future research.
