Juliano Aparecido Khun, Moriel Savagnago


Objective: In this article, our objective was to conduct a systematic literature review in order to identify the main factors that provide a fertile environment for the emergence and development of innovations.

Methodology / Approach: We used systematic literature review, in order to search business field on the basis of EBSCO’s and Scopus, with identification of keywords in titles and abstracts.

Originality / Relevance: This is a proposition of a research agenda on the enabling environment to the development of innovations.

Main results: The results pointed out that there are factors that are manageable by the companies and others that are not manageable or of little management. The results also showed, by the number of studies on the respective factors, that the most relevant dimensions are ‘organizational culture’, ‘management and leadership’ and ‘organizational structure’.

Theoretical / methodological contributions: The following research agenda is proposed: (i) how much consumer pressure can be a factor that contributes to the creation of an enabling environment to innovation; (ii) entrepreneurship as a source of innovation; (iii) dependency on large customers can negatively impact the enabling environment to innovation; (iv) the levels and ways that pessimism and optimism acted as predictors of creativity and, consequently, of the generation of innovations.
