Abstract

Adopting Rogers' diffusion model and the modified diffusion model presented by Askarany, this paper examines the level of association between perceived attribution of innovations and the diffusion of one managerial tool: Activity-Based Management (ABM) in organisations. Addressing the five main categories of attributes of innovations: 'relative advantage', 'compatibility', 'complexity', 'trialability' and 'observability', the findings suggest that the diffusion of ABM is significantly associated with the specified attributes of such innovations. The findings shed light on some factors influencing the diffusion of recently developed techniques and innovations in organisations.
