Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of strategic factors on inter-organisational learning in a local productive arrangement (LPA) network. Specifically, the apparel LPA located in the city of Santa Cruz do Capibaribe, Pernambuco-Brazil was studied, mainly composed of micro and small enterprises (MSEs). For this, the quantitative survey method was used, with a sample of 301 respondents, analysed through the modelling of structural equations of the PLS type. The results demonstrate a second-order model, due to the complexity of inter-organisational learning, with measurement and structural validation. This model shows inter-organisational learning in this type of network being influenced only by the trust factor and the spatial proximity existing between the participating MSEs.
