Description

Some organizations are highly innovative and successful, while others are less innovative and successful. What are the conditions that are associated with innovativeness? This paper assesses values congruence as one variable which may be present in organizations whose professionals and managers report significant organizational innovativeness. The Innovation Capability Audit and the Values Analysis Worksheet were administered to a group of research participants to determine the relationship between innovation and values congruence. A correlation of - .711 was found. This indicates a significant inverse relationship between the two variables being measured, innovation, and values congruence.
