Abstract

This study's goal is to carry out a systematic literature evaluation of research that have determined the factors that influence innovation. The next step is to determine the key elements that project-based businesses in the UAE must have in order to successfully adapt innovation. The authors conducted an organized review of the peer-reviewed literature from the years 2005 to 2023. The researchers created a list of innovation determinants based on a total of 16 recognized main studies. In order to help businesses understand where to begin enhancing their capacity for innovation, the identified list of determinants was sent to a poll where it was used to rank the key list of determinants of innovation based on how important they are to project-based companies.
