Partial least squares of structural equation modeling have been used to test research hypotheses by using SmartPLS?? 3.0 software. Results: The study s primary finding is that LO has a significantly positive effect on SMEs performance and this relationship is strengthened under the moderating influence of environmental turbulence (ET). Conclusion: Environmental turbulence (ET) enables SMEs to focus on learning capability to get a more competitive advantage.
