Abstract

Organisational success is contingent on how to innovate in general and the most focal attitude toward innovative work behaviour,in particular. The aim of this study was to identify the underlying factor structure of employee innovative work behaviour innovative and to test their analytical nature and interrelatedness in an Asian context. In this study, the three dimensions of Innovative Work Behaviour (IWB) were identified through a survey involving 202 managers working in Malaysian Government organisations. Results of this study demonstrated a two factor solution model, instead of the hypothesised three factor model and the dimensions that were found to have a positive and significant impact on employee behaviour related to the stage of idea generation and idea actualisation. Suggestions for practitioners are provided on how to close the gaps in knowledge and for evaluating innovative work behaviour practices. Future research will likely focus on greater understanding of organizational characteristics, and how innovative behaviour influences organizational performance.
