Authors : Amina Josetta Kayani and Muhammad Syukri Abdullah

Abstract: This study addresses primary issues that are involved in innovation capability among the employees in the oil and gas industry. Three factors namely knowledge sharing, management support and trust and goal clarity are examined to help enhance the understanding on innovation capability among employees. The methodology utilizes primary data from questionnaires administered to a sample of 217 employees in oil and gas companies. These self-administered questionnaires were distributed using the non-probability sampling technique. Descriptive statistics, correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis were employed to analyze data via Statistical Package Social Sciences (SPSS). Results established that all variables have a significant positive influence over innovation capability. Recommendations to successfully compete in the current turbulent economic times include improving best-practices that enhance knowledge sharing, management support and trust and goal clarity among employees which will eventually have positive ramifications over innovation capability.
