  • The impact of entrepreneurial orientation and human capital on firm performance: the mediating role of technological innovation capability   Order a copy of this article
    by Seyed Mohammad Javad Razavi, Mahdi Talebpour, Haywantee Ramkissoon 
    Abstract: Focusing on the theories of innovation, this study investigated a model of human capital (HC) and entrepreneurial orientation (EO) as the drivers of technological innovation capacity (TIC) and assessed the influence of TIC on firm performance (FP) in Iranian sports manufacturing firms. The theoretical model of the research was used to evaluate the data collected from 546 employees from 77 medium and large manufacturing firms in Iran. This study finds that HC and EO had a positive influence on the TIC of Iranian sports manufacturing firms. In addition, EO, HC, and TIC activities significantly influenced the performance of these firms. Furthermore, TIC didn’t mediate between EO and firm performance while the impact of HC on FP is found to be moderated by TIC. Considering the ongoing development of the proposed theories in entrepreneurship, innovation capability, and firm performance, the findings of this study offered a combination of structural equation modelling (SEM) and data envelopment analysis (DEA) approaches and had important implications for industrial authorities in developing successful and sustainable sectors of manufacturing firms.
    Keywords: entrepreneurial orientation; human capital; technology innovation capability; firm performance; sports manufacturing firms.

  • Information content disclosure of VAIC: influence on firm value through firm performance and leverage   Order a copy of this article
    by Harmono, Ika Insyiroh 
    Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the information content disclosure of VAIC influence on firm value through firm performance, and leverage, to obtain a robust integrated model that can reveal the information content of intellectual capital. The research population is 709 companies listed on the Indonesian capital market. Using purposive sampling, 159 manufacturing companies were identified from 2017 to 2019, with N = 507 observations, by using path analysis and panel regressions. The research finding is a robust integrated model in which capital employee efficiency (CEE) and human capital efficiency (HCE) affect firm value when using (Tobin’s Q) fully mediated through firm performance (ROI) and leverage (DER). The results obtained highlight the importance of the integrated model that places firm performance (ROI) and leverage as an intervening variable between the information content of VAIC and its effect on firm value, become a model for disclosing the information content of multidimensional intellectual capital.
    Keywords: value-added intellectual capital; VAIC; financial performance; ROI; capital structure; firm value; Tobin’s Q.
