    Abstract

    While innovation is increasingly attracting the attention of academics and practitioners alike, there is paucity of research investigating the adoption of e-business solutions that support innovation development and commercialisation. Using qualitative evidence that is based on a case study incorporating a focus group and sixteen in-depth interviews across R&D, marketing and administration functions in a mid-sized Australian university and a technology transfer office, we investigate the organisational adoption of an innovation management tool. By applying the technology-organisation-environment framework to an innovation context, this study contributes to the existing body of knowledge by enhancing the current understanding of organisational adoption of innovation management tools. Management implications and future research directions are also discussed.
