In the multiple regression analysis, creative culture was the best explanatory factor of superior corporate performance. Thus, we conclude that a culture with an emphasis on innovation generates competitive advantage.Originality/value – The organizations should make efforts to understand and manage the dynamics of corporate culture, harnessing their own dominant culture in the quest for superior corporate performance. As posited by RBV, our results show that investment in creative and innovative culture is particularly favorable to the creation of competitive advantage and, consequently, business performance.
