Abstract—Innovation capability is one of the most important concepts for an organization to have competitive advantage. There has been not any consensus on defining and measuring innovation capability because of its nature. Thus, innovation capability and related concepts have been interchangeably used in the literature. This has caused confusion in measuring it. The aim of this paper is to generate a solution for this confusion by presenting a literature-based model and developing a measurement scale. For this purpose, the literature was thoroughly reviewed to identify innovation measurement-related studies and a model was presented. Measurement items were also gathered from literature and eliminated by evaluating each item in accordance with the model and pretest. In order to obtain a measurement scale, a survey was conducted with enterprises in Turkey. One general scale and a specific scale for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) were developed by using factor analysis.

Index Terms—innovation capability, model, measurement, scale
