This study begins with assessing dominant cultural types in characteristics of Clan, Adhocracy, Hierarchy and Market by using Cameron & Quinn's Competing Values Framework among selected 45 Sri Lankan giftware firms. The study moreover, assesses innovativeness of the Sri Lankan giftware manufacturing sector and the types of innovations predominant among these firms. Furthermore, it investigates whether there is a significant correlation between scale of culture dimensions and degree of innovativeness. Finally, it identifies most dominant cultural dimensions that need to be strengthened in giftware manufacturing firms in Sri Lanka to enhance their innovativeness thereby making them more competitive in the global marketplace.
