Previous research on the management competences and organisational capabilities necessary for continuous innovation in complex and dynamic environments and evidence emerging from a study of innovation in palliative care are compared. A range of research on the management of different types of innovation within changing contexts is presented along with research on the relationships between management competence, organisational capabilities and innovation choices. Evidence is presented from research into innovation management in palliative care that enables a relationship between some elements of the theory and practice of innovation management in complex and dynamic environments to be established.

Keywords: complex environment; continuous; dynamic capabilities; improvement; palliative care
