A Study of CEO Transformational Leadership, Organizational Factors and Product Innovation Performance: Scale Development and a Theoretical Framework

A Study of CEO Transformational Leadership, Organizational Factors and Product Innovation... The purpose of this study is to provide a scale development process, in order to preliminarily address the reliability and validity of CEO transformational leadership, some key organizational factors, and product innovation performance constructs. Data for this study were collected from 264 manufacturing firms in Thailand. The measurement scales were pre-assessed using the Q-sort method, and exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was also conducted to assess the construct reliability and validity. This research established a theoretical framework of CEO transformational leadership, organizational factors including innovation strategy, organizational learning, innovation culture, new product development process, and product innovation performance. Q-sort technique and EFA can help improve the content validity and the construct validity of CEO transformational leadership, some key organizational factors, and product innovation performance. This study provided the initial developmental steps toward the building of a theoretical framework and scale measurement to allow better understanding of the constructs based on the context of firms in Thailand. This will allow researchers to bring new insights when exploring these constructs under differing operational conditions. The findings address additional steps required towards improved methodological aspects in terms of how to pre-validate and develop a measurement scale in various constructs within alternative domains. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Innovation Science Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to provide a scale development process, in order to preliminarily address the reliability and validity of CEO transformational leadership, some key organizational factors, and product innovation performance constructs. Data for this study were collected from 264 manufacturing firms in Thailand. The measurement scales were pre-assessed using the Q-sort method, and exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was also conducted to assess the construct reliability and validity. This research established a theoretical framework of CEO transformational leadership, organizational factors including innovation strategy, organizational learning, innovation culture, new product development process, and product innovation performance. Q-sort technique and EFA can help improve the content validity and the construct validity of CEO transformational leadership, some key organizational factors, and product innovation performance. This study provided the initial developmental steps toward the building of a theoretical framework and scale measurement to allow better understanding of the constructs based on the context of firms in Thailand. This will allow researchers to bring new insights when exploring these constructs under differing operational conditions. The findings address additional steps required towards improved methodological aspects in terms of how to pre-validate and develop a measurement scale in various constructs within alternative domains.
