LOUSA, Eva Petiz  e  GOMES, A. Duarte. The influence of technology, organizational size and age on innovation. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.4, pp. 252-259. ISSN 1984-6657.

The purpose of this work is to assess the influence of organizational variables (technology, organization size and age) on organizational innovation. A total of 102 top-level managers of Portuguese organizations, from different sectors, sizes, and ages answered a questionnaire concerning innovation activity in their organization. The results of this exploratory study highlighted positive as well as negative significant relationships of these organizational variables in different dimensions of the innovation process. This can be useful to better understand how innovation occurs within and between different industries or companies. This study includes objective measures that can capture the innovative efforts in an organization more directly and identify some organizational characteristics that may affect innovation activity.

Palavras-chave : Organizational innovation; technology; organizational size; organizational age.
