Alpkan, Lütfihak and Bulut, Çağrı and Günday, Gürhan and Ulusoy, Gündüz and Kılıç, Kemal (2009) Organizational support for intrapreneurship and its interaction with human capital to enhance innovative performance. [Working Paper / Technical Report] Sabanci University ID:SU_FENS_2009/0010
This study explores the impacts of the internal supportive environment for intrapreneurial activities on firms’ innovative performance and the moderating role of human capital in this relationship by making use of a questionnaire study covering 184 manufacturing firms in Turkey. As for the individual direct effects of the dimensions of Organizational Support (OS), Management Support for Idea Generation and Tolerance for Risk Taking are found to exert positive effects on innovative performance. Availability of a Performance Based Reward System and Free Time have no impact on innovativeness, while Work Discretion has a negative one. As for the role of Human Capital (HC), it is found to be an important driver of innovative performance especially when the OS is limited. However, when the levels of both HC and OS are high, innovative performance does not further increase, probably reaching a temporary performance ceiling. Managerial and further research implications are provided.
