This is an international study investigating the extent to which leadership at strategic level affects innovation in the context of three Slavic socio-cultural clusters. It has been found that leadership at strategic level had a strong relationship with top-management influence on two types of innovation - product-market (PM) and administrative (ADM) innovations. In addition, the results have indicated that executive locus of control failed to moderate the effects of leadership at strategic level on either PM or ADM innovations, but group-level characteristics, represented by TMT job tenure, and environmental components, such as social culture did so in the case of ADM innovations. Based on the revealed similarities and variations of the effects of leadership at strategic level across Slavic socio-cultural clusters, conclusions have been drawn for general patterns and situational specificity of leadership at strategic level, its effects on innovation processes, and the impact of contextual factors on these effects.
