Informative Aspects of Innovation Implementation within Organisations

Open access


The aim of this paper is to analyse the informative aspects of implementing innovations within contemporary formal organisations, in particular, in enterprises. The paper concerns the information quality and its influence on the process of innovation implementation. Today, in conditions of the dynamic development of the scientific and technological knowledge, the question is no longer if there is a need to imply innovation but how to do it efficiently. Within the process of innovation implementation, the organisation’s management selects the appropriate ideas, makes the decision and takes the action to implement a new or a significantly improved solution. In this paper, the factors interrelated with the process of innovation implementation were analysed. The information asserts itself as a significant factor which influences the process. The neoinstitutional view on the information in organisations was a starting point for analysis. A conceptual framework of the information attributes, which influence the quality of the implementation of an innovation, was proposed. The applied research method is the secondary data analysis, which was based on the theoretical literature, as well as the empirical research results.
