چکیده:

The strategic management literature recognizes innovation as a critical enabler for firms to create value and sustain competitive advantage in the increasingly complex and rapidly changing environment (Subramaniam and Youndt, 2005). Firms with greater innovativeness will be more successful in responding to changing environments and in developing new capabilities that allow them to achieve better performance (Montes et al., 2004). Innovation initiatives tend to depend heavily on employees’ knowledge, expertise, and commitment as key inputs in the value creation process (Youndt et al., 1996). The knowledge-based view depicts firms as repositories of knowledge and competencies (Spender, 1996). According to this view, prior studies recognize the knowledge and competencies of human resource as valuable assets for firms because of their characteristics of firm-specific, socially complex, and path-dependent (Collins and Clark, 2003).
