Abstract

The innovating culture of an SME can be defined as patterned way of organizational meaning and sense-making which is (re-)produced through the enactment of cultural knowledge in innovation processes. Extant work assumes that SME with different innovating cultures react differently to external change stimuli, and that SME innovating culture is both operative in and subject to changes stimulated by external factors. However, these assumptions were so far not tested. Moreover, we are missing a comprehensive overview of external factors that actually stimulate change in SME innovating cultures. This paper contributes an empirical study which exploratively identifies such external factors and tests the above assumptions
