Innovation implementation effectiveness : a multiorganizational test of Klein Conn and Sorra's model

Sawang, Sukanlaya (2008) Innovation implementation effectiveness : a multiorganizational test of Klein Conn and Sorra's model. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


Implementing innovations is a challenging, high-risk task for many organizations. Dr Sawang examines the implementation of various innovations in manufacturing and non-manufacturing contexts. This thesis used the current best practice in structural equation modelling techniques to empirically test the model of implementation effectiveness in both Australian and Thai firms. Commitment from top managers, provision of implementation policies and practices, positive climate and skilful and talented staff enhanced successful implementation. Dr Sawang’s research contributes to a more rigorously tested and comprehensive model of implementation effectiveness.
