Resumo: This paper seeks to promote a better understanding of the relationships between, and possible effects of, strategic knowledge management (SKM), innovation, internationalization, and performance in the Portuguese footwear industry. The rationale for this research is based on the understanding that innovation has played a major role in the recent good performance and internationalization of this industry—trends that have developed despite Portugal’s economic recession. The study used a quali-quantitative methodology, gathering data through semi-structured interviews with chief executive officers of footwear firms and academics specializing in innovation, as well as a questionnaire concentrating on the largest geographical cluster of Portugal’s footwear industry. We found support for our initial expectation that SKM is mainly absent from these firms’ formal practices: codification is seldom considered, and personalization tends to be informal. Nevertheless, SKM contributes to innovation, and more innovative firms are more extensively and deeply internationalized.
