Abstract: The paper studies the effect of perceived decision making style and organisational innovativeness in Indian entrepreneurial firms. Studies in the past have focused only on the relation between the two constructs briefly. However, in the Indian context research is still scarce. The study used the questionnaire method to understand the relation between constructs. Perceived top management team has a positive relation with innovativeness in entrepreneurial firms. The study widens its scope by including the third construct perceived top management decision making style, in order to test the relation and its effect. The study findings indicated that perceived top management team vision and perceived top management team decision making style had a significant positive relation. Perceived decision making style acts as a moderator variable between perceived top management team (TMT) vision and organisational innovativeness.
Keywords: vision; decision making style; DMS; innovativeness; moderator variable.
