  • Abstract  In the competitive industry environment, the only way for the organizations to defeat their competitors is innovation. The only way for the organizations to defeat their competitors is innovation. For example, Acer almost spent its whole expenses and efforts in the industry of laptop without the foresight of Tablet PC, so Apple became the pioneer and had a high market share in the industry of Tablet PC. It seems that how to invent a new technology and find a new market become the main issue for the organization. Accordingly, the researcher investigated how the three abilities of problem solving and team composition affected on the performance of innovation in the study. 
     The results from the empirical study showed that there was significantly negative relationship between help seeking and the performance of innovation or help giving and the performance of innovation. The result was not similar to the prior research. However, the reflective reframing was positively related to the performance of innovation. The result could prove that the ability to reframe reflectively was important for the team which was responsible for developing new products. Additionally, the result of the study indicated that team composition insignificantly positive mediated to help giving and the performance of creating a new market; the others five path were significant.
     Therefore, the team composition probably has negative influence on the team if the team members are not willing to reframe reflectively. The researcher suggests that the organizations should foster the team’s reflective reframing for increasing the performance of innovation.
