The predictive relevance Q2 of the model was checked. Results of the blindfolding procedure revealed that organisation innovation had Q2 0.579 which is substantial. Effect size analysis (f2) revealed that enjoyment in helping others and organisation innovation were the most important factors to determine organisation performance. Practically, this study suggested that managers need to focus on organisation innovation and strategic innovativeness factors in order to enhance the organisation performance.
