The objectives of this research are: (a) to analyze the model of the optimization of the empowerment and performance improvement of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) by identifying and analyzing the external and internal conditions, human resource capability, new product development capability, and production and operation capability, (b) to analyze the competency level that consists of knowledge, skills, and abilities of the human resources of the SMEs and (c) to examine the effect of internal and external factors and human resource competencies on the innovation capability and performance of the SMEs. The population of this study was all SMEs’ workers or craftsmen in the creative industry center located in Jember that consisted of 30 persons from SumberJambe Batik and 20 persons from Tanoker. Census sampling was applied in this research. Data were analyzed by using Partial Least Square (PLS). Results show that most respondents agree and give positive assessment on the external factors of the SMEs of SumberJambe Batik and Tanoker. Most respondents also give positive evaluation on the level of human resource competency of the SMEs that consists of knowledge, skills, and abilities. The competency factor of human resources has a positive effect on the innovation capability of the employee. Thus, the hypothesis which states that internal factors, external factors, and human resources competency positively affect the performance of SumberJamber Batik and Tanoker in Jember is accepted.
