El concepto de organización informal tiene orígenes en las observaciones de Elton Mayo en la fábrica Hawthorne Works de la Western Electric Company, realizadas entre 1924 y 1933. Este aporte, esencial para la escuela de las relaciones humanas, evolucionó y se integró a la teoría de la organización. Esta investigación revisa la literatura relevante para abordar la relación entre la organización informal y la innovación empresarial. A partir de dicha revisión propone un modelo conceptual que pone en contexto los factores de la
organización informal y las capacidades de innovación, estableciendo una relación entre ambas. La propuesta realizada toma como referente el Modelo de congruencia del comportamiento organizacional de Nadler y Tushman. Para cada nivel considerado por estos autores (organizacional, grupal y personal), el modelo propuesto identifica, desde la perspectiva del comportamiento organizacional, factores de la organización informal asociados al desempeño innovador.
