Abstract

Innovation is the pillar for sustainable economic development. Yet, firms always face problem in enhancing their innovation performance. Past studies reveal that new knowledge is the main input which help firm to enhance its innovation performance. Thus, acquiring and exploiting new knowledge have become one of the critical tasks that firm focuses on. Extant studies have used absorptive capacity to measure acquiring and exploiting knowledge and tested its relationship with firm innovation performance. However, the results are mixed. A need to separate the acquiring and exploiting knowledge is essential. Based on data collected from 156 Malaysian firms, this study has measured the absorptive capacity by using two constructs, which are quality of information and change willingness and tested its relationship with firm’s product innovation.
