ABSTRACT
Elevating the continuous innovation capability of technology-based small and medium enterprises (SMEs) has consistently been a pivotal means for SMEs to distinguish themselves in fiercely competitive markets. However, within the academic sphere, research on the continuous innovation capability of technology-based SMEs significantly lags behind other sectors. This paper seeks to investigate the need and tactics for augmenting the perpetual creativity aptitude of high-tech SMEs, with the ultimate aim of allowing these businesses to reach greatness in this area.This study constructs a theoretical framework, based on the principles of continuous innovation theory and knowledge management theory, with knowledge acquisition (both explicit and tacit) as the independent variable, knowledge integration as the mediator, and continuous innovation capability as the dependent variable.The primary objective is to ascertain if (explicit and tacit) knowledge acquisition is seen as an independent factor impacting continuous innovation capability, and to investigate the mediating effects of knowledge integration in the connection between (explicit and tacit) knowledge acquisition and continuous innovation capability. Utilizing random sampling, 455 authentic surveys were conducted in China to fulfill the desired objective. The study scrutinized these theories through correlation and regression analysis, revealing that knowledge integration played a major role in tacit and explicit knowledge acquisition with ongoing innovation skills. The significance of knowledge acquisition and integration is emphasized in these findings, which contribute to the enhancement of high-tech SMEs. The results of this research are significant for small and medium-sized enterprise proprietors, decision-makers, and scholars, highlighting the critical role of knowledge gathering and amalgamation in boosting ongoing innovation in tech-oriented SMEs.
