This study tried to develop a theoretical model to explore the mediating effect of organizational culture and knowledge sharing on benchmark learning and Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) implementation success. For analyzing both the measurement and structural models of this study, the Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) method was employed as it was capable of allowing the incorporation of both unobserved (i.e., latent) and observed variables in the same model and being able to handle errors of measurement within exogenous variables in a better manner. Results suggest that benchmark learning is directly related with all the four types of organizational culture development culture, group culture, hierarchical culture and rational culture and is indirectly related with knowledge sharing and AMT implementation success. Specifically, development culture has direct impact on AMT implementation success, while hierarchical culture, group and rational culture are indirectly related with AMT implementation success, mediated by explicit and tacit knowledge sharing.
