This exploratory research through literature review considers the theoretical, conceptual differences and relations between organizational performance and organizational fitness. Organizational fitness plays a preparatory role that enables organizations to perform. The relationship between the two is largely reciprocal as organizational performance emits feedback that enables organizational learning and informs the fitness process in its strategic alignment and organizational capabilities building roles. An organizational performance-fitness model is developed to describe the relationship between the two constructs.
