The aim of this article is to investigate the moderating role of risk management in the relationship between the dimensions of Entrepreneurial Orientation (OE) and organizational performance.
Relevance / originality
Many efforts have been devoted to understanding the relationship between risk management and its relationship with the dimensions of EO, but surprisingly few studies have dedicated themselves to investigating risk management as a moderating variable.
Methodology / approach
The research method adopted is the systematic literature review proposed by Rowe, which considers 7 (seven) steps. To build a systematic literature review, it is necessary to review and synthesize the relevant literature to compare the results of previous studies.
The results make it possible to identify that risk management acts positively on the company's sustainability, decision-making, and investor relations.
Theoretical / methodological contributions
The research contributes to the strategy literature, extending the understanding of the role of risk management as a moderating variable between EO and organizational performance.
Social / management contributions
The paper points out risk management as an organizational tool that positively affects company performance. Therefore, it is recommended to adopt formal risk management practices consistently and consciously.
