Studies on innovation have suggested that a creative organizational climate tends to play an important role and is a predictor for innovation. However, lately, the presence of learning culture in an organization tends to explain a considerable influencing effect on innovation too. This particular case study tries to examine the influence of both variables on innovation and to determine which one of the two can be a better predictor for technological and organizational innovation. The results indicated that both learning culture and creative climate significantly contributed 80.4% to the variance in the innovation construct with organizational creative climate on its own, contributing 55.6% and the learning culture on its own, contributing 63.7% of the observed variances in innovation. The results of the study also found that the learning organization dimensions contributed more to the variances in innovation, particularly the dimension of 'Strategic Leadership* which had a significantly high predictive power on innovation occurring within the case organization as compared to the ten organizational creative climate factors and the rest of the six learning organization dimensions.
