Abstract


Since the open innovation (OI) concept
was introduced, its positive effect on company innovation performance has been
commonly accepted by innovation professionals. The resource-based view of the
firm, along with the dynamic capability perspective applied to the context of
open innovation, suggests that there is an interdependency between company
capabilities, activities, and, as a result, performance. In this paper, we particularly
explore the potential mediating and moderating roles of organisational
capabilities in the relationship between OI adoption and performance. Analysing
the data from 252 European companies, we found that although organisational
capabilities do have a positive influence on the intensity of OI adoption,
their mediating effect on company innovation performance might occur through
inbound activities, but not through outbound or coupled ones. We discuss this
and other insights received from our study in relation to the existing
literature, and propose directions for further research.
