This paper aims to examine the impacts of corporate entrepreneurship, national policies and supply chain collaboration on the innovativeness of manufacturers of light emitting diode (LED) in Malaysia.
The data were collected by using questionnaire survey from the manufacturers involved in the various echelon of the supply chain. The data collected were analyzed by using partial least square (PLS).
Corporate entrepreneurship plays a moderating role in the relationship between national policies, supply chain collaboration and innovativeness.
This study is only focusing on the supply chain of LED in Malaysia; hence, the results may not be suitable to be generalized to wider populations.
The findings of this study could help the local companies to understand on how, as entrepreneurs, they could expand from small scale to contract manufacturers through enhancing innovativeness. This is important as failure to do so may cause them to be excluded from the global supply chain.
This study expands the existing literature by providing empirical evidence from the perspective of an emerging country, namely, Malaysia. It also attempts to close the gaps by examining the role of corporate entrepreneurship as the moderating variable.
