Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of transformational leadership on organizational innovation in higher education in Yemen. Evaluation of the proposed model was done through a questionnaire survey with data collected from 279 valid responses among managerial employees within the Sana’a University departments. The analysis examined the relationship between the variables of the proposed model, and includes confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), and structural equation modelling (SEM) via AMOS. The results of the analysis show that the data fit the proposed model well, including two second-order constructs; transformational leadership and organizational innovation. The model proposed by the research, as evidenced by the goodness of fit of the model to the data, and the findings of the multivariate analysis demonstrated main results that transformational leadership has a positive impact on organizational innovation. The theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
