Abstract:The contributions of this research are three-fold. First, we build an integrative theoretical framework examining the antecedents to successful new product idea generation by combining organizational cognition constructs and frameworks. Second, the two guiding conceptual frameworks used to build the integrative theory (market interpretation modes and organizational cognition mechanisms) are empirically tested and result in newly developed and tested measures. And finally, this research results in implications for NPD management, allowing organizations to better manage their new product idea generation processes, by understanding the effects of various market interpretation modes for different strategic objectives in new product development.
