The purpose of this study was to explore the role of entrepreneurial competencies as combination of five sources (analytical, innovation, operational, relationship, commitment) in an organization and how it leads toward firm performance through key mediating effect of dynamic capability and moderating effect of external integration. A sample of 200 supervisors is collected from SMEs (ICTs). The result showed that dynamic capability mediates between capabilities analytical, innovation, operational, relationship, and organization performance respectively. Whereas commitment capability has a direct impact on Organization performance. Furthermore, external integration positively moderates between dynamic capability and organization performance.
