Addressing SMEs, studies about management innovation are scarce and traditionally disconnected from works on technological innovation. This paper’s research question explores whether technological innovators benefit from introducing management innovations. Using 2837 SMEs from CIS data, our findings suggest that the integration of technology and organization creates higher-order complex innovation capabilities and positive complementarities that improve performance. Implications for scholars, managers and policymakers related to SMEs are presented.
