Abstract

Very little research today has investigated the role of governance structure, knowledge sharing and decision making in the innovation process in member-serving non-profit organisations (MSNPOs). This research project aims to develop a theory suggesting that the above elements play a significant role in innovation process that leads to strategic advantage in MSNPOs. Using qualitative in-depth semi-structured interviews with 5 senior executives from 5 MSNPOs in Australia, this project examines how the three elements support innovation formulation and implementation in the organisations. The study helps to build a nascent body of literature linking the three elements and strategic innovation in MSNPOs.
