In this paper we reexamine and generalize research findings on the determinants of industrial innovation performance using a Threedimensional framework. Those dimensions are: generality over innovations, decision focus, and managerial controllability. The major determinants identified are: a) strategic and organizational factors including general management's support, business-project fit, and R&D-marketing interaction; b) R&D and production factors including product superiority, experience and synergy effect, user benefit of the product, and patent protection; and c) market and environmental factors including degree of competition and market growth. An empirical study of 112 new industrial products confirms that dynamic interaction exists betweeen these determinants and the launch time of the product.
