1 Theoretical model framework of the matching decision between organizational innovation and technological innovation
1.1 Relationships between organizational innovation and technological innovation
The definition of the matching relationship between organizational innovation and technological innovation is based on the interaction between the two kinds of innovation. And until now, there is no unified definition on the matching relationship between them. Thus, this paper researches the representative opinions on the matching relationship in the management area and concludes the matching relationship connotation between organizational innovation and technological innovation. Matching relationship is a kind of close relationship among two or

If there is obvious consistency between the develop strategy of information system and management strategy, it means that there is a matching relationship between them [20]. The matching relationship of technology and organizational structure could be described as the absolute value of the difference value between the two variables by mathematical symbols and mathematical linguistics [21]. Actually, the technological matching of tasks reflects the personal ability, the basic need of the task and the consistency degree among different functions [22]. The degree of consistency means a status of bilateral matching. The method of using the complementary relationship to define the matching relationship emphasized on the group effect of matching. And effective complementary could enlarge the basic function of the whole system. It means that the complementary effect among different factors could exceed the total of the effect of each single factor [23]. The complement between technological innovation and non-technology innovation should be paid close attention in the whole enterprise. The economic effect that is made by the matching relationship between technological innovation and non-technology innovation is greater than the sum of the economic effect that is made by each factor. The internal complement that is formed by organizational structure and employers could promote the…show more content…
The factor of enterprise would be changed with the external environment. Thus, the idea of contingency approach is the key point to completely understand the definition of the matching relationship of organizational innovation and technological innovation [26]. In the view of contingency, the matching relationship should be understood not only to be a temporary or long-term status, or a permanent result, but also an important process that achieve the result [27]. With the change of external environment of enterprise innovation, the matching relationships among these innovational factors are not stationary. The matching relationship would be changeable with the development of enterprises. And then, the firm should try to find the next matching status and achieve a better innovational aim. The stability and balance of each system need an important precondition. The precondition is that all the factors about the system could get a good matching relationship result in the process of interaction. Thus, the matching relationship between organizational innovation and technological innovation is shown by the both of result and process. The definition of matching relationship should contain the matching result and matching process. The degree of matching level should be judged the degree of organic unity between the matching
