The Prediction of Organizational Performance: The Case of Program Innovation.
Hage, Jerald; Dewar, Robert
Three aspects of organization -- structure, resources, and leadership attitudes -- were examined in a longitudinal study of 16 health and welfare agencies to determine which factors best predicted the rate of program innovation. Study results revealed that occupational specialization was the strongest structural predictor, that professional activity was the most important resource variable, and that positive change attitudes of the elite were the most important leadership variable. Multiple correlation of these variables accounted for 60 percent of the variance. (RA)
