چکیده

پژوهش حاضر با هدف بررسی تأثیر مدیریت دانش مشتری بر ظرفیت نوآوری با نقش میانجی ظرفیت جذب دانش  انجام شده است. این پژوهش از نظر هدف، کاربردی و از لحاظ روش و ماهیت جزء پژوهش­های توصیفی- پیمایشی است. جامعه آماری شامل مرکز تحقیقات و نوآوری صنایع خودرو سایپا واقع در شهر تهران است. با روش نمونه­گیری تصادفی در دسترس، 196 نفر از مدیران و کارمندان این مرکز به عنوان اعضای نمونه انتخاب شده­اند. برای سنجش متغیرهای مدیریت دانش مشتری، ظرفیت جذب دانش و ظرفیت نوآوری به ترتیب از پرسشنامه‌های استاندارد جبینگ و همکاران (2013)، آلبرت- مورنت و همکاران (2018)، حمیدیان‌پور و حصیری (2020) استفاده گردیده است. روایی و پایایی پرسشنامه‌ها از طریق روایی محتوا و آلفای کرونباخ تأیید گردید (83.0). داده­ها از طریق رویکرد مدل‌سازی معادلات ساختاری به واسطه نرم­افزار­هایLisrel(8.80)  و SPSS تحلیل شده­اند. تحلیل نتایج پژوهش در سطح خطای 5% بیانگر تأثیر مثبت و معنادار مدیریت دانش مشتری بر ظرفیت نوآوری است. بعلاوه، نتایج تحلیل مسیر غیر­مستقیم گویای نقش میانجی ظرفیت جذب دانش در تأثیر مدیریت دانش مشتری بر ظرفیت نوآوری است. به عنوان یک نتیجه کلی، مدیران با شناسایی و شبیه­سازی ایده­ها و اطلاعات مشتریان، دانش فرا­سازمانی و بهره­برداری از آن‌ها در فرآیند­ها و عملیات صنعت، ضمن ارتقاء ظرفیت جذب، زمینة لازم را برای ظرفیت نوآوری فراهم می‌آورند.

1- INTRODUCTION
Today, innovation capacity is one of the most important and debatable research topics in the automotive industry. this research was aimed to investigate the relationship between customer knowledge management and innovation capacity considering the mediating role of knowledge absorptive capacity.
2- THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK
Customer knowledge management is a dynamic process to improve customer information including three different knowledge flows as following: knowledge of, knowledge about, and knowledge for customers. innovation capacity is a continuous improvement of the organization's general capabilities and resources to discover and exploit opportunities for developing new products in order to meet market needs and expectations. absorptive capacity is defined as the organization’s ability to absorbing and utilizing new knowledge in the way of value creation, the various dimensions of which include acquisition, combination, transformation, and exploitation of knowledge.
3- METHODOLOGY
This research is an applied study in terms of purpose and it is a descriptive-survey study in regard to the method. the statistical population encompasses the managers and employees of saipa automotive research and innovation center located in tehran. 196 people were sampled by convenience method. the instrument for data gathering was a questionnaire made up of pre-made measures the content validity of which was established by considering the experts’ opinions. in addition, its reliability confirmed after calculating cronbach's alphas. research hypotheses were examined by conducting structural equation modeling in lisrel v.8.8 software.
4- RESULTS & DISCUSSION
The research results, at the confidence level of 0.95, indicated that customer knowledge management has a positive and significant effect on innovation capacity directly and indirectly through knowledge absorptive capacity. by identifying and simulating customer ideas and information in line with creating and exploiting extra-organizational knowledge, managers can improve the absorptive capacity and pave the way for innovation capacity.
5- CONCLUSIONS & SUGGESTIONS
For managers of the automotive industry to achieve success, the knowledge and customer should be kept both in mind. customers should be considered as one of the most important sources of knowledge for improving the continuous innovation capacity.
