Moderated Mediation Analysis Of Leader Technology Orientation: A Study Of Operations And Manufacturing Leaders Of India
This article aims to understand the impact of the relationship between operations leader employee orientation (LEO) and leader information orientation (LIO) on leader long-term orientation (LLTO). The relationship is mediated by leader inclusivity orientation (LINCO) and moderated by leader technology orientation (LTO). The data were collected from business leaders who had more than 15 years of experience in the domain of supply chain, operations, and manufacturing. The total number of questionnaires sent to respondents was 620. Authors received 446 filled responses, out of which 360 responses were usable. The response rate was 58 percent. Moderated mediation analysis was performed to analyze the data and to test the proposed hypothesis. The findings revealed that the relationship between LEO LIO has a significant effect on LLTO. The relationship was positively mediated by LINCO. Further, LTO was found to be significantly related to LEO–LINCO–LTO and LIO–LINCO–LTO in a way that the relationship is strong when LTO is high and weak when LTO is low.
