Firm technological innovation persistence: Organizational innovation matters

By Naciba Haned, Christian Le Bas, Caroline Mothe and Uyen Nguyen

Abstract

Organizational innovation favors technological innovation, but does it also influence technological innovation persistence ? This article investigates empirically the pattern of technological innovation persistence and tests the potential impact of organizational innovation using firm-level data from three waves of the French Community Innovation Surveys. Evidence shows a positive effect of organizational innovation on technological innovation persistence, according to various measures of organizational innovation. Moreover, this impact is more significant for complex innovators (i.e., those who innovate in both products and processes). These results highlight the complexity of managing organizational practices with regard to the firm's technological innovation. They also add to comprehension of the drivers of innovation persistence, through a focus on an often forgotten dimension of innovation in a broader sense.Les innovations organisationnelles favorisent les innovations technologiques mais influencent-elles la persistance à l'innovation technologique ? Cet article analyse empiriquement un modèle de persistance de l'innovation et teste sur des données de panel l'impact potentiel des innovations d'organisation. La base de données est issue de trois vagues d'enquêtes communautaires sur l'innovation réalisées sur un échantillon d'entreprises françaises. Les résultats montrent un impact positif de plusieurs mesures des innovations organisationnelles sur la capacité des firmes à innover de façon persistante. Toutefois, l'impact est plus significatif pour les innovateurs complexes (innovant dans les produits et les procédés). Les résultats mettent en lumière la complexité des pratiques de management organisationnel. Ils aident aussi à comprendre plus finement les déterminants de la persistance à l'innovation à travers une analyse centrée sur une dimension souvent oubliée : l'innovation organisationnelle
