The organisational factors that promote the adoption and implementation of innovation

Research Briefing

Keywords: innovation, organisational characteristics, innovation adoption,
innovation implementation

A new systematic study of the organisational factors that promote and help organisations to adopt and implement innovation has just been published. The study examined every peer-reviewed research paper since 1973 looking at these factors.The study was conducted by researchers from eight different American universities.

The reason for the study was that it is been identified that there is a considerable gap and lag between the discovery of new innovations and the adoption and implementation of those innovations in organisations. Initially, the researchers found that the decision by an organisation to commit to any new innovation is usually a form of evidence-based intervention.
