Abstract

A media firm’s orientation toward R&D and innovation is largely determined by CEOs who frame market opportunities and drive investments in firm resources. As such, CEO’s traits (age, tenure, career background, education) are known to be a predictor of firm R&D spending and attributed levels of innovation and firm performance. This paper explores how CEO traits influence levels of R&D-led innovation expenditure. It concludes that CEO traits had no influence on firm R&D expenditure and that a firm’s ‘Research Intensity’ is primarily influence by their ‘cultural orientation toward innovation’ and the ‘stage of the industry lifecycle’ where it is competing.
