Systematic approaches to understanding innovation are common, but these approaches still need testing as theories. This study aims to fill that gap by constructing sectoral and technological innovation-system failure models as theories and by testing those models using a multiple case study and fuzzy set qualitative comparative analysis. Both theories predict innovation system performance. Qualitative comparative analysis proved useful in both constructing and testing theory.
