When technology leaps forward, the internal “capability gap” between new technology requirements and what incumbent companies/industries can implement is often an issue. Misalignment between technology requirements and an organization’s ability to meet them can also exist outside a company’s boundaries. Digital adoption, especially among local companies are barely touching 20 per cent, and most manufacturing companies apply less than 50 per cent of automation. Malaysia has always scored among the highest in the region in terms of digital readiness, according to global surveys. Critical challenges include the lack of awareness, especially among local companies in terms of the impact of and benefits of keeping up with new technologies. It shows the level of technology usage is still very low within business operations especially in the supply chain that discourages the firm to digitalise their business. Thus, this study identified innovative value chain factors affecting company performance among local companies in Sabah particularly. This paper use Diffusion of Innovation (DoI) theory to introduce three variables that were proposed to help predict innovative value chain among local companies in Sabah namely: idea generation, idea conversion, and diffusion of innovation.
