The paper suggests that governance and leadership of innovation can be greatly enhanced within organisations if executive decision makers had better taxonomies available based on important contextual variables. The aim of this paper is to provide direction for future research aimed at identifying generic taxonomies or patterns that assist managers and leaders understand when to apply different innovation strategies and innovation leadership styles. An appropriate innovation leadership reference model is proposed. The focus turns to identifying and discussing important moderating contextual and situational variables on innovation governance and in particular the innovation strategy and innovation leadership. The paper suggests researching the influence of selected contextual and situational variables to support or modify the proposed innovation taxonomies and patterns.
