Enhancing Innovation Through Implementation of the Comprehensive Approach to Nurturing the Compliance Culture of the Worldwide Innovation Ecosystem

Open access

Abstract

Objective: The innovative ecosystems consist of a large number of complementary elements, and their effectiveness depends on how well the elements interact with each other. Corruption erodes public trust, which is necessary to enable the cooperation of entities. The aim of the research is to formulate the comprehensive approach to nurturing the compliance culture of the innovation ecosystem.

Methodology: This research study was realized with non-empirical (theoretical) research, which seeks solutions to problems using existing knowledge as its source. Prototyping of a new anti-corruption approach was based on usage of application of existing knowledge and existing experience resulting from the implementation of Norton Kaplan balanced scorecard and Kotter’s process for leading change.

Findings: It was found that the balanced scorecard of compliance culture in innovation ecosystem might enhance anti-corruption outcome. Identification of nine anti-corruption variables and using them to plan and realize corruption prevention might influence the anti-corruption effectiveness.

Value Added: Model of acceleration of anti-corruption changes in the organization was proposed.

Recommendations: Proposed original, unique comprehensive approach to anti-corruption within organizations will help to achieve the positive effects faster, which will enhance positive anti-corruption trends within and outside the innovation ecosystem.
