Abstract: Mastering continuous change has become an important issue for an increasing number of organisations. However, the management of innovative performance is hindered by the lack of measures that could enable the reliable assessment and effective development of organisational capabilities for continuous renewal, learning and innovation. The objective of this paper is to describe the development of a survey instrument, the Organisational Renewal Capability Inventory, for measuring organisational renewal capability, and to assess its validity and reliability. This paper contributes to the literature on innovation by providing a systematic technique for collecting, analysing and interpreting data about organisational capability for continuous renewal.

Keywords: continuous innovation; organisational renewal; dynamic capabilities; knowledge-based view; measurement; survey; innovation management.
