Despite their prevalence, little is understood about the role of organizational values within the high technology sector. This paper extends the authors‟ existing research on management by values (MBV) as a pathway to fostering innovation culture. This empirical mixed-methods approach analyses three industry narratives on innovation culture and the value statements of twenty-four listed technology companies. Values are thematically coded in Nvivo and quantitative and categorical metadata also recorded. This study provides one of the first empirical studies of value statements within the high-tech sector. Findings from this research highlight the re-emergence of MBV as a key prerequisite for creating an innovation culture and changing the focus of these values more strongly to reflect the attitudes and actions required to establish an innovation culture. The paper concludes with a model of the conditions and properties needed to establish innovation culture through an MBV approach.
