Innovation plays a key role in the economic growth of companies, sectors, and countries, sparking widespread interest in innovation research. Based on innovation literature, the present research seeks to validate the influence of innovation on the performance of exporting firms in emerging economies. This study contributes to research in the field of strategic innovation management and to practice in the design of public policy and exporting firm strategy, especially in emerging economies such as those in Latin America.

The study promotes the role of culture as a long-term strategic instrument for innovation and competitiveness capacities, using data on European Union countries. The recent Great Recession (2008–2013) serves as a case study of macroconditions' broad differences. A priori, economies where effects from the Great Recession are greater should display deteriorated innovation capacity and competitiveness performance, more than in countries where effects are less severe. The empirical evidence derived ...

We examine network relationships, particularly the type and strength of these relationships and how firms use them in order to commercialize different types of innovations. We conduct an in-depth case study of four small firms to provide insight on how and why a portfolio of network relationships (e.g., suppliers, distributors, customers, and research institutes) helps small new innovative firms to gain resources. We develop a framework of four innovation types and expand on how successful comme...

Abstract To clarify the nature of the effect of firm innovativeness on business performance, this study draws on contingency theory and an interactional perspective to develop a conceptual framework to investigate how the interaction between market turbulence and competitive intensity moderates the relationship between firm innovativeness and business performance. This study used survey data from a sample of 154 high-tech manufacturing firms in Taiwan and employed hierarchical moderated regressi...

The “radicalness” of an innovation is often contingent upon access to distinct technologies which arise from sourcing innovation outside a firms' focal industry (exterior sourcing). We posit that exterior sourcing leads to technology distinctness and that the presence of technology distinctness significantly affects the relationship between exterior sourcing and radicalness. In addition, we assert that high technology distinctness results in a stronger association with radicalness irrespective o...

This paper reports the findings of the first academic study in Latin America, and one of the few in any emerging economy, to explore entrepreneurial perceptions and activity in peripheral geographic locations. A survey of experts included 139 respondents from three peripheral regions and two core regions in Chile. A key finding is that those located at the periphery perceived critical entrepreneurial resources and access to markets less favorably than their counterparts at the core, but surprisi...

There is continuing debate concerning the organizational conditions and capabilities that promote or prevent the emergence of different types of radical innovation. The aim in this study is to provide further insights into this issue through an empirical investigation covering the role that two firm-specific strategic orienta...

One of the most important research questions in the field of strategic management is the performance differences between companies that compete with each other in product/service market and the way to sustain competitive advantage. Competitive advantage is reflected in superior economic performance compared to rivals. Innovation is one of the most important capabilities to differentiate products, services, procedures, and overall our business in order to gain superior performance outcomes. Recen...

Abstract null null The exporting literature has so far shown that dynamic export capabilities (DECs) are instrumental in achieving export success. However, it is unclear whether and to what extent the deployment of DECs represents a profitable activity for exporting SMEs. To resolve these issues, we draw on the knowledge-based view and firm diversification literature to investigate the relationship between DECs (innovativeness and adaptability) and profitability under the moderating effects of m...
This study examines the various factors that drive firms’ innovations in Visegrad countries. For the empirical analysis, we used data from the Eurostat Community Innovation Survey 2012–2014 and the probit regression model. The probit regression analysis finds that the main drivers of innovations in these countries are competing in foreign markets, engaging in innovation activities such as R&D and in-house training activities. We find that engaging in R&D was probable to improve product innovatio...

The relationship between innovation and international competitiveness is the subject of many research studies. The aim of the paper is to examine the association between the introduction of product innovation individually and in pairs with process and marketing innovation and the exporting of enterprises from 13 European Union countries, mainly from Central and Eastern Europe. The study used anonymized micro data from the Community Innovation Survey (CIS) for 2012-2014. Based on the sample of 98...
