The discussion on the high-performance organization (HPO) emerged in early 1984. The terminology of the high-performance organization has attracted scholars to study the concept of the HPO, its related factors, and its outcome toward the organization’s goals. Since then, scholars have frequently used the term “High-Performance Organization” further to investigate the development of the concept in this area. The objective of this study is to depict the systematic review of literature on high-performance organizations which had been published in the Scopus journals from 1984 to 2020. Based on the Scopus database, all published articles related to high organization performance were compiled and integrated as the data. VOS viewer (visualization of similarities) Publish or Perish and Microsoft Exel software has been used to process the collected data. A total of 199 documents were analyzed and found much of the high-performance organizationrelated work was conducted in the United States and the Netherlands. Mainly, business management and social sciences have been focused in high-performance organization literature however other important areas such as Material science, Pharmaceutics, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, and Mathematics have been ignored and paid less attention. This study examines the history of the HPO scientific literature and identifies current research objectives, as well as future research paths and dimensions in the field.
