The critical factors of team innovation - the Grey Relational Analysis

Abstract

A model analysis based on literature review is lacking in team innovation research. This study attempts to fill this gap by the Grey Relational Analysis (GRA) to propose a preliminary list of critical factors on team innovation. The application of GRA method proceeds in two-stages, grouping factors via global GRA first, followed by ranking the groups in order of importance via local GRA. The results reveal that there are 13 critical factors out of 21 antecedents in the team innovation literature, and they are highly correlated. With such an analysis, the identification of critical factors of team innovation is fine grained with a sound foundation. Those factors together are plausible variable candidates or a good starting referent for building team innovation models in future researches. This study contributes to the team innovation literature by suggesting a quantitative method to the team innovation field.
