The objective of this research was to investigate the impacts of antecedents on strategic transformational management capability. A questionnaire was the tool used to collect the data from 167 managing directors or managing partners of electronic and electrical appliance businesses in Thailand. The statistical technique used to analyze is the ordinary least square regression. The findings suggest that internal factors including continuous adaptation leadership, dynamic knowledge management, best business experience and external factors, competitive pressure intensity, had positive impacts on strategic transformational management capability. Therefore, the managing directors or managing partners should place an emphasis upon the importance to promote and support the four factors.
