Miguel Torres Preto (University of Coimbra, Portugal & IN+, Center for Innovation, Technology and Policy Research, Portugal) and Juelma Guerreiro (University of Lisbon, Portugal)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-4666-8216-0.ch020
The aim of this chapter is to examine the determinants of organizational innovation. To study the relationship and influence that the determinants have on organizational innovation the authors use data from CIS 4 for Portugal. The results of the logit model indicate that firm size, geographic scope, patents, process innovation, product innovation, R&D, internal source, market source and institutional source positively affect the propensity to introduce organizational innovation. Furthermore, the services are more likely to introduce organizational innovation than manufacturing firms. The results also support the argument that organizational innovation expands the development of product innovation and process innovation, promotes the increase of productivity and economic growth, and is a driver of competitive advantage.
