Abstract

PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to analyse the effects of implementing a standardised innovation management system (SIMS) in accordance with the Spanish UNE 166.000 standard on technological and administrative innovations and company performance.Design/methodology/approachStructural equation modelling was used to test the research hypotheses with a sample of 200 manufacturing companies.FindingsThe results obtained show that implementing the SIMS promotes all types of innovations and their results. In addition, a positive relationship is found between administrative and technological innovation.Research limitations/implicationsThe results of this paper show the importance of innovation management systems for the effective development of innovation processes. Despite the limitations that may arise from differences between the measurements and actual implementation, the application of a system of standard-based innovation management encourages the development of different types of innovation.Practical implicationsThe research validates the use of standardisation for the development of innovation as a useful tool for the management of innovation in the company. The UNE 166.000 standard provides a guide for those companies that intend to develop more effectively administrative and technological innovations.Originality/valueThis is the first known paper testing the implications of UNE 166.000 SIMS on both organisational innovation and performance in a sample of companies.
