CONCLUSION

This study provides initial empirical evidence of the


relationship
between
core
competence
and
organizational performance.

Core competencies are key component in enhancing


the organizational performance.

CONCLUSION

The results of the regression analysis provide support


for the three hypothesized relationships. Consistent
with H1, that core competence dimensions shared
vision, cooperation and empowerment has a
significant
positive
effect
on
Organizational
Performance.

In accordance with H2, there is 0.178 variation on


competitive advantage due to core competence which
is very low. For H3 there is 0.256 variation on
organizational performance due to competitive
advantage which is also very low.

RECOMMENDATION

The study provides empirical evidence of the effect of


core competence on organizational performance.
Therefore, pharmaceutical industry managers can use
the current findings to develop strategies that
enhance organizational performance.

Taking the results in account the managers should


focus on creating core competence within the
organization to create competitive edge. This is one of
the variables that are not focused by organizations in
Karachi as showed by empirical evidence. Creating
this variable the managers will automatically increase
their competitive advantage which is a general
assumption.
