En este trabajo se analiza, desde un Enfoque basado en el Conocimiento, el efecto de un conjunto de prácticas organizativas sobre los resultados de la empresa, teniendo en cuenta su agrupación en dos bloques: las que están relacionadas con la exploración del conocimiento, y las que lo están con la explotación del mismo. Tras llevar a cabo un estudio empírico en una muestra de empresas industriales innovadoras, se encuentra que el efecto conjunto de estas prácticas sobre el resultado es mayor que si éstas son consideradas de forma autónoma, lo que sugiere la necesidad de plantear estrategias que integren a las mismas en un marco común con el fin de obtener sinergias y alcanzar resultados organizativos óptimos. / This paper explores, from a knowledge-based view of the firm, the effect of a set of organizational practices on firm performance, highlighting their grouping into two blocks: practices related to knowledge exploration and those related to knowledge exploitation. After developing an empirical study in a sample of innovative industrial companies, we found that the joint effect of these practices on firm performance is higher than their single consideration. Thus, it suggests a need of establishing strategies that integrate these practices in a common framework with the aim of obtaining synergies and achieving optimal organizational performance.
