From a Resource-Based Perspective, company competitiveness critically depends on assets accumulated by the organization. The focus of analysts often concentrates on the so-called ''innovation capacities.'' Along these lines, a main concern of theorists and practitioners of technology management, is identifying the type and level of capacity needed to support successful management systems RDI (Research, Experimental Development and Innovation). The present work aims at contributing to this issue by developing a capacity assessment methodology. It presents an evaluation methodology that integrates three components: a conceptual model based on a systemic approach to companies that borrows the conceptual proposal of Nadler and Thusman, and develops a characterization of capacities; a metric developed based on the Capability Maturity Model (CMM); and an implementation instrument based on semi-structured interviews
