Fitjar, Rune Dahl, Gjelsvik, Martin and Rodríguez-Pose, Andrés (2013) The combined impact of managerial and relational capabilities on innovation in firms. Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, 25 (5-6). pp. 500-520. ISSN 0898-5626
In this paper, a survey of more than 1600 firms in the five largest city regions of Norway is described in order to examine how a firm's innovative capacity is affected by three types of factors: factors related to the manager, the structure of the firm and the broader geographical location. By combining perspectives from the fields of management and economic geography in a logistic regression analysis, we find that the two key drivers of firm-level innovation in Norway are the presence of open-minded managers and evidence of collaboration with international partners. Moreover, these two factors are mutually reinforcing, as firms with open-minded managers also tend to engage more with international partners and vice versa.
