Abstract: The study was aimed to examine the impact of human capital dimensions on form survivability. The study further investigated the mediating role of knowledge management in the said relationship. To measure human capital six dimensions (education, experience, health, personal attributes, skills, and training) were utilised. The data was collected through a structured questionnaire. The respondent's agreeableness on statements was measured by five-point Likert scale. The sample size of the study was 342 responses collected from the owners of SMEs in Iraq. A structural model was developed to relate the variables and these relationships were examined using partial least square structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM). SmartPLS 3.0 was used to analyse the data. The findings suggest the positive and significant impact of HC-dimension on firm survival. The results also suggest the mediating role of knowledge management on the relationship of HC-dimension (education, skills, and training) on firm survival. The results were supported by the existing literature. Moreover, the research implication, limitations and future research avenues were presented.
