Again, I am proud of our little team who made it to another prominent research publication venue, that is European Management Review. We have published a paper on a most promissing topic of management innovation: ČERNE, Matej, JAKLIČ, Marko, ŠKERLAVAJ, Miha. Management innovation in focus : the role of knowledge exchange, organizational size, and IT system development and utilization. European management review, 2013.
Below is the abstract.
This study aims to design and test a model examining the antecedents of management innovation at the organizational level. We propose internal knowledge exchange as a crucial predictor of management innovation and examine the mediating effect of IT system development, as well as the moderating effect of organizational size in the examined relationship. We test the model using structural equation modeling and hierarchical moderated regression analysis on data gathered from 604 firms in three countries: Slovenia, Spain, and South Korea. The results indicate a crucial role of knowledge exchange for management innovation, as this link is positive, very strong and significant in all three countries. In addition, our study provided evidence that knowledge exchange results in management innovation through developed IT systems that enable the information and knowledge to flow within an organization, as well as that the relationship between knowledge exchange and management innovation is hindered by firms’ size.

Today, we (that is Matej Černe, Christina Nerstad, and Anders Dysvik) held a research seminar on an article that we will present at the Academy of Management Conference 2012, Boston, MA. It has also been chosen for the publication in Best paper conference proceedings. Its’ central idea is that knowledge hiding of an individual creates a so-called distrust loop which in turn damages one’s self creativity (not just creativity of coworkers). And performance climate just makes things worse (to put it in simple terms). However, that there is a cure for that called a mastery climate – a climate that promotes development, growth and collaboration among colleagues. Great discussions and most helpful comments from the colleagues from Department of Leadership and Organisational Behavior, BI Norwegian Business School.

I am really proud to announce that we received a prestigious Best Conference Proceedings Award for the Academy of Management Meeting, 2012, Boston (MA, USA). Reviewers have ranked the paper Černe, M., Nerstad, C., Škerlavaj, M. “Don’t come around here no more: Knowledge hiding, perceived motivational climate, and creativity” to be amongst the best in the OB Division. We provocatively suggest and prove that knowledge hiding not only damages organizations, but also individuals who hide knowledge themselves. In addition, we offer a remedy for that. The negative effect of knowledge hiding on creativity can be mitigated with fostering appropriate organizational climate.
