Abstract:This paper analyses the differences between innovator and adaptive organisations based on the capabilities of personal mastery, organisational learning and capacity to innovate and on organisational performance and job satisfaction. The hypotheses are tested using data from 402 Spanish firms. The results show that: personal mastery, organisational learning, capacity to innovate and organisational performance are highly inter‐linked in both innovator and adaptive organisations; innovator organisations encourage more personal mastery, organisational learning, capacity to innovate and organisational performance than adaptive organisations; personal mastery, organisational learning and capacity to innovate better explain the organisational performance and job satisfaction in innovator organisations than in adaptive organisations.
