COOPERATION NETWORKS AND ORGANIZATIONAL FACTORS ON SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION

Eyup Calik, Fazleena Badurdeen, Alperen Bal

Abstract


Sustainable innovations need more partnerships than available within the boundaries of an organization. Cooperation with research organizations, public institutions, nongovernmental organizations, intermediary organizations and other pressure groups as external actors for sustainable innovation play an important role in organizational performance. Some organizational factors such as knowledge management, learning, and culture influence this relationship as internal factors. There has not been a comprehensive conceptual model that considers the relationships among external actors, organizational factors, and sustainable innovation in the literature yet. In this study, we propose a conceptual model to show all relationships between these factors following a systematic literature review to identify all important relationships. The model takes a general perspective, beginning with establishing cooperation to the end of firm performance. It can also provide a basis for researchers to test the relationships and to evaluate all factors that affect sustainable innovation, and sustainability-based firm performance for managers.
