Despite innovation's importance in firm strategy and competitiveness, most innovation research fails to examine some important questions relating to innovation. This study focuses on two innovation management issues: Identification of determinants of the innovation management process and the implications of these determinants for firm innovation performance. Building on Tidd and Bessant's (2009) conceptual model, this study examines innovation capacity constructs within innovation management structures.
