Purpose: The purpose of this work is to make interest among SMEs practitioners and to deliver useful data to scientists conducting research on agility and opportunity recognition and the relationship between these topics by conducting a concise bibliometric analysis of the literature addressing these issues. Design/Methodology/Approach: A systematic review of the literature bases for all pairs of keywords agility, opportunity recognition, and SMEs was conducted. Briefly reviewed publications from 2017-2021. Findings: There is an extensive literature on each individual keyword. This was pointed out in the introduction. The literature for the combined words is more modest. Works linking agility and opportunity recognition with SMEs published between 2017 and 2021 have been selected and briefly discussed. Practical Implications: The selected and succinctly discussed publications from 2017-2021 provide SME practitioners with useful information that can initiate or develop their interest in agility and opportunity recognition issues and researchers with bibliometric data useful for their further work. Originality/Value: The originality of this work lies in the fact that it discusses the literature dealing with the issues relatively rarely presented in publications, namely the conjunction of agility and opportunities recognition in SMEs. It is valuable for practitioners who want to learn about these issues and for scientists who conduct research in this field.
