Abstract:Firms increasingly take part in interorganizational collaborations to support their innovativeness. However, high failure rates indicate that a lot of these collaborations are not successful. Therefore, there is a need to understand what determines interorganizational innovation success. This study analyzes the effect of routines on collaborative innovation performance. It is indicated that the firms engaging in a collaboration both have their own set of initial, intra-organizational routines but the partners in the collaboration can also develop together a new interorganizational routine. This study examines the effects of the continuity of intra-organizational routines and the development of an interorganizational routine on collaborative innovation performance. The results based on experimental data show that continuity of intra-organizational routines has a negative effect on collaborative innovation performance while the development of an interorganizational routine affects collaborative innovation performance positively. The results contribute to a better understanding for managers about the influence of routines on the innovativeness of their interorganizational collaborations.
