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

Sukanlaya Sawang, Kerrie L. Unsworth

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


In an empirical test and extension of Klein Conn and Sorra's model of innovation implementation effectiveness, we apply structural equation modelling to identify the generalizability of their data-modified model in comparison with their theorised model. We examined the implementation of various types of innovations in a sample of 135 organizations. We found that the data supported the original model rather than the data-modified model, such that implementation climate mediated polices and practices and implementation effectiveness, while implementation effectiveness partially mediated the relationship between implementation climate and innovation effectiveness. Furthermore, we extend their model to suggest that non-financial resources availability plays a critical role in implementation policies and practices.
