Abstract

Organizational performance is an important indicator for the survival and development of organizations, especially nowadays, the spread of the new crown epidemic, the declining international economic situation, and the increasing difficulties in the operation of domestic and international organizations have forced all organizations to actively seek ways to improve organizational performance. The measurement and influencing factors of organizational performance in different times and industries vary for each organization, but there are commonalities. This paper reviews a number of papers that attempt to identify the factors that influence organizational performance as a reference for organizations to improve their own performance. The literature review summarizes four antecedent variables that have a significant impact on organizational performance: organizational risk, organizational human resource management, organizational heterogeneity, and organizational leadership style.

Keywords

organizational performance, organizational risk, human resource management, heterogeneity, leadership style
