Abstract: Many indicators related with innovation evaluation and measurement in firm level have been developed. Nevertheless, these indicators are insufficient to evaluate the whole important innovation aspects comprehensively. This may lead to inappropriate conclusion about how well innovation in a firm can result. Therefore, a new indicator needs to be developed. This paper attempts to propose innovation quality as new innovation indicator in firm level. Innovation quality is defined as the summation of evaluation on customers' satisfaction and firm's innovativeness. Innovation quality can be measured by quantifying innovation output, outcomes, impact, and satisfaction towards them in a specific time-period. The calculation can then be summarised in a quantitative model. The model has potential to be developed and applied in different level.

Keywords: innovation; quality; indicator; customer satisfaction; innovation output; innovation outcome; innovation impact; evaluation; innovativeness; measurement model; basic concept; business research; innovation management; innovation performance; innovation level.
