Building on the innovation literature and organizational economics, and using a fuzzy-set Qualitative Comparative Analysis (fs/QCA) of 20 firms, we analyse how different combinations of centralization of decision-making, cross-functional involvement, and codification of information are associated to value appropriation from innovation. Our findings show that value appropriation from innovation can be facilitated by a heterogeneous bundle of coordination mechanism, suggesting structural heterogeneity and equifinality in the causal patterns.
