An empirical test of the information processing and socio-political perspectives in New Product Development Projects

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • New product development research draws on a range of different theories, though no

    overarching theory explaining NPD success has emerged. Atuahene-Gima and Evangelista

    (2000) however identified an underlying dichotomy in existing theories: economically

    rational approaches, and socio-political approaches. In this paper we test a model which

    reflects this dichotomy, and using data from 184 NPD projects, we provide empirical

    evidence that that this multi-lens theoretical approach has great potential to better understand

    factors driving NPD outcomes.
