In fact, however, increasing situation control involves specific risks (including coordination problems). Without concurrent integration to cushion these risks through orientation, consensus and trust, increasing situation control leads not to a further increase in innovativeness but to a decline. This first empirical demonstration of the covert curvilinear relationship between situation control and innovativeness in N = 101 organisations reveals these risks. At the same time, it calls into question the widespread recommendations in the literature for action on innovation friendly organisations and leadership. Conclusions are drawn from the findings with regard to the theory of innovation promotion and the methodology of innovation research.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T10:10:01Z</dc:date> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T10:10:01Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
