Desde la perspectiva teórica propuesta por Narver et al. (2004), este artículo analiza el efecto de la orientación al mercado reactiva y proactiva sobre el éxito de la innovación y la moderación de la orientación al aprendizaje con fuentes internas y de mercado. Utilizando regresión lineal, se encuentra que la orientación al mercado reactiva tiene un efecto lineal positivo sobre el éxito de la innovación, mientras la proactiva tiene un efecto de U invertida, moderado por la orientación al aprendizaje de mercado. El texto demuestra que el efecto de cada tipo de orientación depende del tipo aprendizaje. Y se concluye que las empresas mejorarán su éxito de la innovación combinando adecuadamente su orientación al mercado con el tipo de aprendizaje utilizado.
