A model of organizational innovation implementation effectiveness in small to medium firms
Sawang, Sukanlaya & Unsworth, Kerrie L. (2011) A model of organizational innovation implementation effectiveness in small to medium firms. International Journal of Innovation Management, 15(5), pp. 989-1011.
The present study aims to validate the current best-practice model of implementation effectiveness in small and mid-size businesses. Data from 135 organizations largely confirm the original model across various types of innovation. In addition, we extended this work by highlighting the importance of human resources in implementation effectiveness and the consequences of innovation effectiveness on future adoption attitudes. We found that the availability of skilled employees was positively related to implementation effectiveness. Furthermore, organizations that perceived a high level of benefits from implemented innovations were likely to have a positive attitude towards future innovation adoption. The implications of our improvements to the original model of implementation effectiveness are discussed.
