As organizations become increasingly specialized, the ability to engage suppliers in innovation efforts has become critical for success. An increasing number of researchers have emphasized the importance of leveraging supplier capabilities for innovation performance. In this paper we present intermediate results of a systematic literature review in supplier innovation. Our purpose is to map existing knowledge through systematic coding and make a synthesis of means and mechanisms that stimulate supplier innovations and of capabilities that are needed to integrate supplier innovations to business processes.
