Although scholars had made some exploratory researches on open innovation, there are still insufficient in some respects, especially knowledge capacities, it is the key factor that enterprises implement open innovation. Knowledge capacities mainly include six kinds of abilities: creative capacity, innovative capacity, scanning capacity, absorptive capacity, internalization capacity and desorptive capacity. They collectively form an evolutionary ability system. There are different requests under different process types of open innovation, different phases of innovation and different enterprises. Management and cultivation are the two dimensions of the construction of knowledge capacities. Enterprises that implement open innovation should strengthen management to knowledge capacities, and adjust their strategy, structure and culture in order to adapt to open innovation. At the same time, they should strengthen their learning capability and relationship capability so as to improve their knowledge capacities.
