This study aims to create performance through innovation that is influenced by knowledge sharing and absorption in the Bali weaving industry.
This study was conducted using quantitative and qualitative designs. Questionnaires were distributed, whose results were measured using a five-point Likert scale. The research population included 1,132 employees of ikat weaving industry. Samples were selected using Slovin formula, resulting in the minimum samples of 175 employees. WarpPLS was used to analyze the influences of variables mentioned in the study hypotheses.
Knowledge gained from external resources is expected to complement the information available in the organization. Sharing knowledge will be more meaningful and effective in supporting innovation and the performance of diligent craftsmen. Although knowledge sharing does not significantly influence innovation improvement, knowledge sharing is still important to improve company performance through stakeholder understanding of the business in general and the business's detailed process. Leader creativity is an important dimension in obtaining and gathering various information from external resources because sharing knowledge has a significant influence on performance and innovation through absorption.
This study was conducted in Bali because it is in accordance with the objectives of this study. Research in Kelungkung Regency is considered to represent Bali because it has the highest number of ikat weaving craftsmen. Knowledge and learning new things must be maintained to increase employee knowledge, understanding of new knowledge from external sources and the performance of diligent craftsmen in Bali.
