Abstract

With the understanding that individual innovativeness plays an important role in organizations, both practitioners and researchers are interested in finding ways to promote individual innovation. Based on the theoretical lens of Structural Holes Theory and Social Cognitive Theory, we examined the impact of network positions, degree of participation and social interaction on individual innovativeness based on the archival data of an organization's online system. The results reveal that individuals who have more structural holes contribute more innovative ideas in the online community, and more responding from peers encourages more future innovation contribution. Implications for research and practice are discussed. © 2014 Springer International Publishing.
