Knowledge integration is the key for enterprise to capture sustainable competitive advantage. Based on review of preior research and papers on knowledge integration, a model is presented in this paper to explore the relationships among organizational culture, social capital, organizational learning and enterprise knowledge integration capability. Through theory analysis, the research framework was built and structural equation model was constructed. Then an empirical research was carried out based on a sample of 490 Chinese enterprises. Research results proved that organizational culture and organizational learning have positive direct effects on enterprise knowledge integration capability, but social capital does not directly affect enterprise knowledge integration capability. It is through organizational learning that social capital affects enterprise knowledge integration capability indirectly. Meanwhile, organizational culture has a positive effect on social capital, and social capital has a positive significant effect on organizational learning. The research result is of some value for enterprises to improve knowledge integration capability.
