How leadership impacts an organisation’s innovation capacity

Research Briefing

Keywords: leadership, leadership development, learning organisation, organisational learning, learning culture, innovation, innovation capacity

Innovation capacity, or the capability of an organisation to invent new processes, systems and products, is a key indicator of long-term organisational outcomes, sustainability, competitive advantage and organisational flexibility. A number of previous studies found that leadership is a key factor in the promotion and facilitation of innovation and employee innovation behaviours at an organisational level.

A new study by a team of researchers from the Universidad de la Rioja, in Logrono, Universidad Nacional de Educacion a Distancia, in Madrid, and the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in Spain wants to look at the impact of leadership on organisational innovation capacity.
