The objective of this paper is to enrich the literature on the
entrepreneurial orientation (EO)–performance relationship by introducing
innovation success as an antecedent variable. By applying structural
equation models, we examine a sample of 356 individuals from five
organisations. The main results show that the team leader EO and firm EO
are complementary and that they boost innovation success significantly,
thereby having an indirect positive impact on the relationship between
EO and performance. The mediating effects of innovation success imply
that it is an antecedent in the EO–performance relationship at
organisational levels, which adds to current theoretical discussions
regarding the multilevel applicability of the EO construct. Thus, this
study represents an original source for human resource departments that
are shaping working groups.
