Abstract: This paper explores whether the investments in Digital Technologies relate to Business Value in organizations and the role of Knowledge Creation. To evaluate this, data collected from Japanese Small and Medium Enterprises from “Competitive IT Strategy SME Selection 100” list of 3 years was analysed by correlation, regression and general linear model analysis. The direct effect that investment in Digital Technologies had on Business Value was observed for Learning & Growth objectives. The influence that the four processes of Knowledge Creation (SECI Model) had was explored and found that Combination process was positively related with the investment in Digital Technologies for Financial and Learning & Growth objectives. Externalization had a negative relationship with the investment in Financial objectives. Although not verified statistically, a trend showed organizations with higher Knowledge Creation Capabilities gained higher benefits from investment in Digital Technologies as the i nvestment increased and vice versa. Although the limitations of this study are related to the population characteristics and responses’ reliability, it was considered that the potential insights were valuable enough to overcome such limitations. With this empirical study the concern of “Digital Investment Paradox” is raised and the debate is initiated with Knowledge Creation as an enabling capability. (More)
