A new article co-authored by Bedrosian Faculty Affiliate Bill Resh was accepted into the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory. The article, entitled “A Systems Theory Approach to Innovation Implementation: Why Organizational Location Matters,” examines how the “success” of adopted innovations depends on both the source of innovation and the organizational environment. Resh and coauthor Tima Moldogaziev argue that not only does the vertical source of the innovation (top-down vs. bottom-up) help determine successful implementation of innovations in the public sector, the horizontal perspective (organization’s core vs. organizational environment) also matters.
