Abstract:Intra- organizational collaborations support organizations in enhancing their innovation performance. Variety in working processes plays a minor though vital role in that context. However, academic literature on the effect of variety of working processes on innovation performance is rare. In that sense, it is stimulating to create an understanding by researching that particular effect based on the data from questionnaires of an experiment on collaborative routines. A causal model will test the direct effect of complementary and supplementary routines on collaborative innovation and secondly the effect with variety in working processes as a mediating variable. The findings imply that supplementary intra- organization routines yield more positive results in relation to collaborative innovation as complementary routines. Moreover, the proposed positive effect of variety in working processes on collaborative performance is not significant. In essence, the findings diverge to a large extent from the academic literature, which is however partly attributable to the use of questionnaires rather than video recordings. In that sense, it is recommended to utilize the videos of the experiment to gain insights on the subject.
