It has been found that innovations are a significant determinant of the export performance of enterprises. Moreover, innovation has been considered an important factor for creating and maintaining the competitiveness of corporations. Research focusing on the relationship between innovation and export performance has concentrated on both developed and developing economies. However, most researchers have studied the impacts of product innovation, process innovation and technology innovation on export performance. Little research has been done regarding the relationship between export activity and management innovation. It is unknown how export performance is influenced by innovation in management, and what the major factors are behind the relationship. Consequently, there are concepts and performance gaps existing. It is therefore imperative to examine whether and how management innovation contributes to improving export performance and how this innovation influences export activities. This would not only rectify the incompleteness of previous research but also provide practical support for exporters.
Innovation, export performance, China.
