Abstract: Organizational performance (OP) is important for the company, employment and the country. Previous studies deployed secondary data approach in developed countries while few studies examined the OP using primary data approach. Using the theories of resource based view, knowledge based view, this study aims to examine the effect of organizational culture (OC), organizational structure (OS), and technology infrastructure (TI) on OP of companies in Saudi Arabia. In addition, the study aims to examine the mediating role of knowledge sharing (KS). Using a purposive sampling, the data was collected from managerial level employees in Saudi. The results of Smart Partial Least Square showed that the OC is the most important variable followed by OS and TI. KS mediated the effect of OC and TI on OP. Companies in Saudi Arabia should establish a KS culture and enhance their TI to achieve competitive advantage and better OP.
