Mol, M J and Birkinshaw, J (2009) The sources of management innovation; When firms introduce new management practices. Journal of Business Research, 62 (12). pp. 1269-1280. ISSN 0148-2963

Abstract

Management innovation is the introduction of management practices new to the firm and intended to enhance firm performance. Building on the organizational reference group literature, this article shows that management innovation is a consequence of a firm's internal context and of the external search for new knowledge. Furthermore the article demonstrates a trade-off between context and search, in that there is a negative effect on management innovation associated with their joint occurrence. Finally the article shows that management innovation is positively associated with firm performance in the form of subsequent productivity growth.
