Authors propose a new typology of organizational innovation based on the integration of theories of organizational learning and theories of knowledge. The three dimensions that authors use to construct typology of innovations are: tacitexplicit, systemicautonomous and simplecomplex. Then authors, analyze the impact of these different types of innovations on the method of sourcing, cost of implementation, and innovation effectiveness. Finaly authors propose that as innovations becomemore tacit, systemic and complex, they tend to be more internally sourced, more costly to implement, and more effective. So the hypotheses were tested using innovations from the commercial banking industry. Data for this study were collected from multiple sources. The innovations were categorized into different types by a panel of experts. Data on method of sourcing, cost and effectiveness were collected from a sample of 101 banks. The results showed that autonomous innovations were less likely to be internally sourced than systemic innovations; autonomous and complex innovations were more costly to implement than systemic and simple innovations. Explicit innovations were seen as more effective than implicit innovations. Implications for theory and practice are discussed.
