Cultural values and leadership styles as determinants of the innovative strength of nations. Part 2: Quantitative research and analyses
by Piet Moonen Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to establish the impact of cultural values and leadership style on the innovative strength of nations in Europe. On the base of a quantitative web survey research possible relations between cultural values, leadership style characteristics and the innovative strength have been examined. Based on the results of this research we may conclude that there is a correlation between several cultural characteristics and leadership style characteristics of countries in question and their innovative strength. The results of this study provide us with the insight that the innovative strength of a nation or organisation can be altered by changing (parts of) its culture and management style. By critically evaluating the qualitative cultural frameworks of several well-known scholars (part 1) and relating then to quantitative statistical data about the innovative strength of nations (part 2), this study has combined the strengths of both qualitative and quantitative methodologies. Keywords: innovation; culture; cultural values; organisational cultures and structures; leadership style; performance in innovation. DOI: 10.1504/EJCCM.2018.10016033
