10.30 AM - 12.00 PM

The growing demand for data, information, and analytics in business operations increases the innovation potential for organisations to develop data-driven innovation (DDI). DDI enables organisations to develop innovation continuously and respond to market opportunities and challenges. However, many organisations fail in their attempt to implement DDI and convert innovative ideas into outcomes due to poor organisational readiness. Organisational readiness for DDI has been largely understudied in information systems (IS) literature. Thereby, this research aims to develop a multidimensional index to gauge organisational readiness for DDI. Through the combination of technological-organisational-environmental variables under the TOE framework and readiness factors under the organisational readiness theory, this study attempts to identify what factors would drive organisational readiness for DDI. Developing such an index will facilitate benchmarking organisational readiness for data-driven innovation while measuring its impact on DDI outcomes.
