The present study intends to examine the predicting role of organizational climate (Competing Values Model) in Innovative Work Behavior (IWB). Additionally, the study examines the effect of organizational size on IWB. The study was carried out on a purposively selected sample of 320 managers from Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) organizations countrywide. The instruments used for the study included IWB, subscales of Organization Climate Measure (OCM) based on competing values model, including Opens System Model (OSM) and Rational Goal Model (RGM). Multiple regression analysis and ANOVA were carried out to test the hypotheses. The results revealed significant positive impact of OSM and RGM on IWB. Moreover, the results did not show significant role of organizational size in IWB.
