Based on multiple and unconnected literature it seems evident knowledge-based leadership styles positively influence organizational capacity for innovation, while some papers also denote lack of available literature to really understand relationships in. In general, the positive relationship is confirmed based on the findings. Also, it seems we’re at the doorstep of the next organizational transformations leveraging data and artificial intelligence. This would complement knowledge-based management styles by bringing a scientific aspect. Merging these could result in innovation targeting specific business metrics more precisely and more efficiently. To succeed in that regard, organizational leaders will have to develop the right skills in these technologies to act as a catalyst for transformation.
