Opportunity recognition and organisation capability have a relationship with SME performance, as evidenced by moderated regression analysis (β) of 1,589 and 0,479. After the Business Model Innovation moderates the two variables, the opportunity recognition relationship to SME performance has decreased to 0,657, and organisational capability to SME performance has increased to 0,724.
