New product development research draws on a range of different theories, though no overarching theory explaining NPD success has emerged. Atuahene-Gima and Evangelista (2000) however identified an underlying dichotomy in existing theories: economically rational approaches, and socio-political approaches. In this paper we test a model which reflects this dichotomy, and using data from 184 NPD projects, we provide empirical evidence that that this multi-lens theoretical approach has great potential to better understand factors driving NPD outcomes.
