Abstract: The focus of the study is to test the relationship between some key internal antecedents and management inno-vation, in companies from Western Balkan Countries. In this study management innovation is conceptualizedas the introduction of new management and organizational practices that are new to the company. Using a largedata sample, from Business Environment Enterprise Performance Surveys (BEEPS) and through binary logis-tic regression, a positive relationship was confirmed between three internal antecedents and management inno-vation. Findings indicate that giving time to employees to try a new approach or new ideas, providing trainingto employees and the size of the company, are positively related to management innovation. Surprisingly andconversely to results of some previous studies, the relationship between the level of education of the workforceand management innovation was not confirmed. Also, the expected inverse relationship between the inade-quate level of education as an obstacle in company work and the level of adoption of management innovationwas not confirmed. Findings from this research study can help management practitioners, scholars and policy-makers, to better understand key drivers of management innovation in transition economies from the WesternBalkan Region.
