The growing level of global competition is forcing organizations to make dramatic change and improvements in order to compete, prosper, and survive (Kotter, 1996). During the past three decades, the world has witnessed some spectacular changes that have provided a totally new environment for organizations. These changes include technological and administrative innovations that organizations are dealing with in different areas of their operations such as manufacturing process, operation technologies, and information systems (Shields, 1997). It can be argued that the growing level of global competition has lead to the adoption of technological evolution, which may also require the adoption of complementary administrative innovation (e.g., Baines & Langfield-Smith 2003). Given this information, to keep pace with other competitors in the global market, the adoption and the diffusion of latest ideas, techniques, practices, and processes has become a key factor for success in organizations. Therefore, this places a greater emphasis on the innovation generation and innovation adoption in organizations in order to compete, prosper, and survive.
