In fact, however, increasing situation control involves specific risks (including co-ordination problems). Without concurrent integration to cushion these risks through orientation, consensus and trust, increasing situation control therefore 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 organizations reveals these risks. At the same time, it calls into question the widespread recommendations in the literature for action on innovation-friendly organization and leadership.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T10:10:21Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Creativity and Innovation Management 12 (2003), 1, pp. 41-49</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dcterms:issued>2003</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>The Risks of Autonomy: Empirical Evidence for the Necessity of a Balance Management in Promoting Organizational Innovativeness</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Gebert, Diether</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:contributor>Boerner, Sabine</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Gebert, Diether</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/4090"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/4090/1/The_Risks_of_Autonomy.pdf"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T10:10:21Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Boerner, Sabine</dc:creator> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:contributor>Lanwehr, Ralf</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/4090/1/The_Risks_of_Autonomy.pdf"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
