This chapter discusses innovation from an organizational perspective. It identifies seven organizational factors associated with innovation: external relationships and funding, goals, organizational size, professionalization, leadership and group participation, task environment, and job satisfaction. Innovation is also affected by what has gone before, by the stages of innovations, and by the actors involved in the organization. Six key variables pertaining to organizational dynamics are discussed: previous experience of the organization with innovation, organizational discontent, type of innovation, communication and contact by organization members with the innovation, the innovation actors, and factors associated with the implementation of an innovation.

Keywords:   organizational factors, dynamics of innovation, organizational change, organizational dynamics, innovation actors, implementation
