Literature on Organizational Innovation: Past and Future Outros Idiomas

PURPOSE – The purpose of this paper is to examine what are both the main theoretical basis and the recent perspectives within the organizational innovation literature. DESIGN/METHODOLOGY/APPROACH – The authors have conducted a bibliometric analysis reviewing the research on organizational innovation from 460 articles published in the period from 2007 to 2016 and indexed in the Web of Science through co-citation and bibliographical coupling analyses. FINDINGS – The clusters analysis results show that the main theoretical foundations are learning and evolution; implementation of innovation; and leadership, creativity and learning. Regarding recent perspectives, the clusters indicate studies on core concepts, knowledge and capability, learning for resource development and human resources for innovation. ORIGINALITY/VALUE – This study organizes the knowledge basis for future research on organizational innovation, and, unlike most literature reviews, this study provides the current trends on the topic and presents a comprehensive research agenda.
