Conceptualizing innovation practice in the public project context is still rudimentary. The first objective of this study was to assess the influence of innovation practice on public project success. The second objective was to evaluate the moderating role of project type in the relationship between innovation practice and public project success. This study empirically investigated a sample of public projects in the Taiwanese construction industry. Regression analysis was used to assess the influence of innovation practice on public project success. In testing the moderation effect, two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used. The findings indicate that adopting innovation practice significantly contributes to public project success. In addition, project type has a moderating effect on the relationship between innovation practice and public project success. Owner and project managers can use the research results to help improve public project success.
