New product development performance
問卷蒐集對象為台灣各產業具有新產品開發經驗之從業人員。回收問卷總數231份，有效問卷227份進行分析。研究結果顯示: (1) 敏捷能耐與動態能耐對新產品開發績效呈正相關 (2) 團隊能耐則透過動態能耐影響新產品開發績效。
The present study seeks to provide new concepts for three main capabilities, and to examine the moderating role of team capability with regard to the relationship among agile capability, dynamic capability and new product development. New product development is important for the survival of companies, and many empirical studies have examined this. This research investigates agile capability, dynamic capability, team capability and new product development, as well as the moderating role of team capability on the relationship between the other two capabilities. The data was collected from respondents with practical experience of new product development in Taiwan. A total of 231 questionnaires were collected and 227 valid responses were analyzed. The results of this work are as follows: (1) there is a positive relationship among agile capability, dynamic capability and new product development performance; and (2) team capability has a moderating effect on the relationship between dynamic capability and new product development performance.
The results of this study can help senior management and project managers to better understand and monitor new product development performance.
