dc.description.abstract Innovation is a dynamic organizational capability closely linked to strategic change. By being innovative, organizations are better placed to achieve strategic success. In this paper, the influence that innovation capability has on strategy execution in deposit-taking Savings and Credit Cooperative Organizations (SACCOs) in Kenya was examined. The study targeted 500 heads of departments in Kenya's 164 fully licensed deposit-taking SACCOs. From a sample of 222 heads of departments, 183 complete responses were received. Structural Equation Modelling was the main analytical framework used to test the null hypotheses that innovation capabilty has no significant influence on strategy execution. The study found innovation capability to have a significant positive influence on strategy execution. Innovation capability explained 43% (R2 = .43) of the variance in strategy execution. This study complements the existing body of knowledge on the relationship between innovation capability and strategy execution. Further , the study presents practitioners in strategic management, policy makers, and the leadership in Cooperatives with valuable recommendations on improving strategy execution by fostering innovation capability. en_US
