Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Drawing from prior work found in the innovation, organisational, strategy, marketing, consumer, tourism, and psychology literature literatures over the past 48 years, this paper offers a new, multidimensional conceptualisation of firm-level innovativeness leading to the development of an integrated conceptual model. The conceptual model explores the key antecedents, dimensions, and outcomes of tourism firm-level innovativeness. Synthesising extant knowledge on the subject, this paper offers a foundation for future research endeavours by developing and defining the construct and providing a set of research propositions. To date, little international significant research activity on innovativeness within the tourism SME firm has emerged. Due to the scarcity of research and interest in this area, it is perceived that this ongoing study will contribute substantially to academic knowledge and practice, highlighting key areas warranting future investigation. Keywords: innovativeness; antecedents; dimensions; outcomes; tourism innovation; conceptualisation
