The technological capabilities are abilities required for the effective use of technological knowledge. They allow manufacturing companies to innovate, which is a basic requirement to compete effectively in markets. The aim of this research was to analyze the factors that put in relation technological capacities with innovation. For this purpose, a literature review, that took into consideration the contributions of many important authors, was carried out. In addition, existing arguments regarding companies in mature economies were contrasted with others that consider the reality of organizations in emerging economies. It was found that technological capabilities are a determining factor for innovation, but that they vary, in particular, as a function of the countries’ development level.
