Abstract:Dynamic capabilities can appropriately explain why the enterprises can respond to the rapidly changing environment. This paper is an empirical study exploring the effects of R&D department's dynamic capabilities on innovative performance in Taiwan and South Korea. We argue that R&D department's dynamic capabilities will have positive effects on innovative performance. Hypotheses were tested using regression analysis. Results showed that this research has a good reliability and validity. Results also showed that combinative capabilities, absorptive capacity, and flexibility have positive effects on innovative performance. However, there might have other moderator existed to affect the relationship between combinative capabilities and innovative performance.
