Abstract

This survey research design study was conducted to explore the organizational (TRF & IC) and individual’s factors (PE, OBSE & RIL) as a predictor of innovative work behaviour among Information Technology Experts. A sample of (N=300) software engineers with the age range of 25-45 were selected from various Government Sector Departments. For data collection, MLQ (Bass & Avolio, 1997) CIS (Scott & Bruce, 1994), PES (Spreitzer, 1995b), OBSE (Pierce, Gardner, Cummings & Dunham, 1989), RIS (Walumbwa & Hartnell, 2011) and IWBS (Janssen, 2000), were used. Appropriate statistical analysis (Correlational & multiple regression) were used to assess the psychometric soundness of instrument and hypotheses testing respectively. Results confirmed that the desired pattern of relationship among the variables. However, results also confirmed that control variables (age, work experience and educational level) were not a good predictors of the innovative work behaviour. Furthermore, the findings of the study highlighted that all the organizational and individual’s factors significantly predict the IWB. Future implications & suggestions for study have also been discussed
