Ana Lucia Ferraresi Schmitz, Dra; Paulo César Lapolli, Édis Mafra Lapolli, Dra

Organizational innovation can suggest innovations in processes, products, services and management.

This is a literature review with emphasis on a systematic review, which comprised a large number of papers on innovation in processes, products and services.
