Dark Side and Light Side Influence towards An Organizational Innovation

Andrew P. Ciganek
Abstract— This study examined the influence that ‘dark side’ or negative and ‘light side’ or positive factors have towards an organizational innovation. A large-scale survey was conducted soliciting participants from a variety of industries representing organizations that had recently made the decision to implement a specific innovative technology. The results indicate that coercion has a negative influence on the decision to implement an organizational innovation while culture and climate as well as management support have a positive influence.

Index Terms— Technological innovation, negative perceptions, coercion, innovation management.
