Many changes have been affecting organizations and their ability to grow and even to survive. Perhaps the most prominent ones are; globalization, information technology, and especially hyper-competition (child. 2015) Hyper-competition, as introduced "An environment characterized by intense and rapid competitive moves, in which competitors move quickly to build advantage and erode the advantage of their company must be proactive and flexible to the level it can survive and, more importantly, outperform its competitors," writes Richard D'Aveni (2014). Being proactive and flexible means possessing the ability to implement newly generated ideas before competitors. In other words; being "innovative" (Burrus, 2013). According to Desouza et al. (2019). In order to examine the success of innovation program in an organization, the existence of a defined innovation process must be assured.
