Somyos Phoosawad, Wanno Fongsuwan and Jirasek Trimetsoontorn

This study is concerned with the modeling and analysis of variables for the organizational performance in the Thai auto parts industry. Auto parts manufacturing and supply has a direct relationship with many other sectors; including leather, plastic, rubber, steel and petrochemicals. It also influences electrical output and consumption as well as electronics production. Body related finishing materials such as glass and paint/surface treatment processes and materials are also considerations. With so many components involved in domestic vehicle production, one can easily see why auto production and its related industries are so crucial to Thai economic might. Research methodologies used within this study include both quantitative and qualitative research. Quantitative is further qualified in this research essay from the survey given to 320 executives in the Thai automotive industry. The Partial Least Square (PLS) technique, a form of structural equation modeling, is additionally used due to it being component-based rather than covariance based. Additionally, qualitative research is supported by input from questionnaires from 10 key Thai auto industry executives utilizing the purposive sampling approach. Thai auto parts organizational performance has been influenced by leadership factors, management skills and management innovation. These three variables and their quantitative and qualitative research resulted in the hypothesis of a significance level of p≤0.01, respectively. The qualitative research results agreed with the corresponding quantitative research results. Research findings from this study suggest that the Thai auto parts industry must develop innovative leadership management to sustain competitive capability.
