Abstract

The purpose of this research was to develop and validate a new measure of information acquisition (IA) and investigate the relationships between IA, Entrepreneurial Opportunity Recognition (EOR), and innovation performance in the high technology sector in Taiwan. This study drew upon Dixon's (1992) conception of IA as a construct of organisational learning to develop a new measure of IA. Dixon's theoretical framework was mostly empirically supported, and the IA measure appeared to be reliable. The results suggest that both IA and EOR positively contribute to individual-level and firm-level innovation performance. IA and EOR were also significantly positively correlated.
