Abstract

This study aimed to shed light on the effect of innovation management factors in promoting high-performance on the part of 800 secondary schools in Thailand. A sample of 2,400 educationalists was selected according to the ratio of one school director to two teachers from the respective schools using multi-stage sampling. The research sample number of 800 schools was determined as being 10 times the parameters required in the model. The researchers utilized a quantitative survey design using a questionnaire as the instrument for data collection. The findings revealed that the innovation management factors, namely transformational leadership, organizational learning, resource management, and school innovation, affected school performance and were found to be consistent with the empirical data (c2 ¼ 184.948, df ¼ 159, c2/df ¼ 1.163, p ¼ .0779, RMSEA ¼ .016, SRMR ¼ .012, CFI ¼ .888, TLI ¼ .998).
