LOUW, L.; ESSMANN, H.E.; DU PREEZ, N.D.  and  SCHUTTE, C.S.L.. Architecting the enterprise towards enhanced innovation capability. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.4, pp.50-65. ISSN 2224-7890.

In today's competitive environment, organisations cannot afford to focus only on effectiveness and efficiencies - they also need to innovate. This is evident from most literature sources on innovation. Innovation topics, such as the innovation process and the drivers, barriers, principles, and success factors for innovation, have received a lot of attention in the literature. What is still lacking, however, is a consolidated view of the core requirements for building an innovation capability within an organisation. This paper lays the foundation for an innovation capability reference architecture by identifying those innovation success factors or requirements described in the literature, and consolidating and structuring it within an easy-to-use enterprise architecture framework.
