Abstract: This study investigates the relationship between management innovation and organisational performance with the high performance organisation (HPO) factors of continuous improvement and renewal, workforce quality and long-term orientation as mediators. From a survey among 186 managers of the insurance industry in Ghana and with the use of PLS-SEM, the results show that management innovation appears to have a direct influence on organisational performance but when management innovation is combined with the HPO factors, it generates a synergy to increase organisations to become HPOs in an emerging market context.

Keywords: high performance organisations; HPO framework; management innovation; organisational performance.
