Abstract:     
Studies on the adoption of innovations by companies generally includemicro-level and meso-level variables in order to explain a company'sreceptiveness to innovations. This study adds to the literature byinvestigating the role of macro-level variables (i.e. nationalculture) to explain differences in innovation penetration levels andadoption decisions by companies across national cultures. Alarge-scale empirical study was carried out in 10 European countriesconcerning the adoption of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) softwareby mid size companies. Results indicate variables describing nationalcultural to have a strong, significant influence on the innovationpenetration and adoption. In addition, we find adoption modelsincluding micro-, meso- and macro-level variables to performsignificantly better in explaining innovation adoption acrosscountries than adoption models that only include micro- and meso-levelvariables.
