Impact of Personnel Capabilities on Organizational Innovation Capability
One of the most dynamic capabilities that lead to the strongest competitive advantage in the organizations is the innovation capability. Analysing the development of ┬áa firmΓÇÖs ┬áinnovation capability capabilities of a firm is an important research project, and can help organizations to achieve competitive advantage in this rapidly changing world.This research focuses on definition of the personnel aspect of innovation capability, and proposes a conceptual model based on the scientific articles of academic literature on organisations innovation capability. This paper includes an expert based validation in three rounds of the Delphi method. And for the purpose of a better appreciation of the relationship dominating the factors of the model, it has distributed the questionnaire to Iranian companies in the Food industry. This research proposed a direct relationship between Innovation Capability and the Personnel Capability. Also, it offers the most important components and indices which directly influence and are related to the Innovation Capability
