The Relationship Between Innovation Strategy and Organizational Performance: Mediating Role of Organizational Innovativeness Level

Organizations constantly face the challenge of keeping up with changing market needs, especially in dynamic environmental conditions. They have to continuously improve their existing processes and products, and develop new products that match market requirements (Ellonen et al, 2011). A firm’s long-term viability in competitive markets depends on how well it embodies its creative ideas in products that fulfil customers’ changing needs and expectations. Creative ideas and their manifestations as products and practices constitute the core of innovation (Im et al, 2013).

Based on the connotation of the economic development, this paper utilizes the technique of pearson correlation analysis and main variable analysis for the same rule hierarchy to filtrate and establish a preferably economic evaluation index system. The specialties of this paper lie in three aspects. Firstly, select Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province as the empirical objects and collect the data of 73 indicators from 2003 to 2012. Secondly, screen indicators from four dimensions including economic benefit, economic operation, economic development speed and economic structure, which are the high frequency indicators of domestic and overseas, then delete unavailable indexes on the principle of observability. Thirdly, according to the principle of eliminating redundant information, this paper uses correlation analysis to delete indicators with high correlation coefficient in the same criteria layer to avoid reduplicate information. After this use main variable analysis to get 23 indicators of maximum information to build a highly representative economic development evaluation index system.
