        The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between organizational learning and organizational innovation through the mediation of knowledge sharing between staff and faculty members of Sabzevar universities. The research method, according to how to obtain the required data, is descriptive and correlational and specifically based on the structural equation model, which used maximum likelihood estimates with skewness adjustment. The statistical population of this study is the official staff and faculty members of public universities, Azad, Payame Noor, new technologies, non-profit and applied science in Sabzevar. To measure the research variables, three questionnaires with a 5-point Likert scale were used. These questionnaires were distributed among 237 employees and faculty members of Sabzevar universities in a stratified random manner. The content validity of all three questionnaires was confirmed by a number of management experts and specialists and the reliability of organizational learning, knowledge sharing and organizational innovation questionnaires using Cronbach's alpha coefficient was determined to be 0.89, 0.96 and 0.92, respectively. . Data were analyzed by Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests, one-sample t-test, Pearson correlation and structural equation modeling using SPSS25 and LISREL software. Findings showed that organizational learning, both directly and indirectly through knowledge sharing, plays a key role in the rate of innovation in Sabzevar universities. Knowledge sharing also has a positive, direct and significant effect on the level of innovation of the organization. In addition, the findings show that the status of key variables in this study in the study population is not appropriate. Manuscript profile

The statistical population of the study includes all experts and employees of the South Zagros Oil and Gas Exploitation Company with 255 people, who are considered as a limited population and all of them have been studied by census method. Standard questionnaires with validity and reliability were used to collect research data. Finally, 248 completed questionnaires were collected and used as the basis for analysis. The results of structural equation testing using PLS 3 software showed that learning from organizational errors does not have a direct and significant effect on innovative performance, but due to the organizational ambidexterity, promotes innovative performance in the organization. In other words, organizational ambidexterity as a mediating variable plays the role of facilitator and complete mediator in the relationship between learning from organizational errors and innovative performance in the organization.

        Firms try to increase their innovative performance to survive in a turbulent market and improve their competitive position. Combining these efforts does not necessarily lead to profit and increase their market share. To understand this shortcoming, researchers look at the factors that affect innovation performance and how to measure it. However, the subject that needs to be addressed is the firm's innovative behavior, which can affect innovation performance. By borrowing from the concept of dynamic capabilities, the present study has tried to classify the possible types of capabilities to create new products, services, and processes into three general categories: innovation capabilities, collaboration-based capabilities, and complementary capabilities, and by presenting different hypotheses for the effectiveness of these capabilities. Test the firm in innovative performance. For this purpose,180 questionnaires were distributed among firms to report the number of new products/services, the number of new processes, their financial performance, and the types of measures taken in their field of innovation from 1392 to 1394. After confirming their validity and reliability and creating structural equations using the partial least squares (PLS) method, results showed that innovation capabilities and collaboration-based capabilities significantly positively affect innovation performance. Also, research and development, training of human resources, design, collaborative research and development, and purchase of technical knowledge have significant path coefficients in the resulting PLS model and significantly affect innovation. In addition, the purchase of machinery and tools only significantly affects the creation of innovation. Manuscript profile

        In modern approaches to marketing, markets are considered as grounds where companies and customers combine and share their resources and capabilities to create dual value (i.e., both for companies and customers) through applying modern learning mechanisms, establishing communications, and engaging in the process of producing goods and providing services. Thus, the current study is aimed at presenting the conceptual framework of the antecedents and consequences of customer engagement with an emphasis on the “dual value” perspective. In the current study, the meta-synthesis research method was applied. From the studies conducted between 2000 to 2020, 46 studies were investigated and selected using the CASP method and were entered into the process of meta-Synthesis. Then, the indicators were coded and categorized, and were validated based on experts’ agreement. The analysis of the data resulted in the identification of 46 indicators, which were classified in the two groups of customer engagement antecedents including customer resources and company resources, and customer engagement consequences including value for customers and value for companies. The resulting conceptual framework can be applied as an instrument for strategic planning in the field of marketing and the development of customer engagement in different businesses.
