The subject of the study is the issue of innovation, or more precisely, an attempt to present potential barriers preventing or limiting its implementation. The main objective of the research is to identify key anti-innovation factors (composition of key barriers) and to rank them (enterprise self-evaluation).

Material and methods:
The above objectives resulted in detailed tasks including an in-depth literature search, verification of available expert knowledge and research of a representative group of entities. The research was carried out by defining a set of the most important barriers to innovation. This enabled further exploration of the issue as part of the work on the method, expert discussions and in-depth sectoral analysis (agricultural machinery - technical means of agricultural transport).

The results confirmed that the adopted research method concept is a helpful evaluation instrument. Conclusions developed as part of the surveyed entities' assessment, related to anti-innovation determinants, proved to be important for the final decisions. Theoretical and empirical considerations were based on the formulated research hypothesis and the assumptions constituting the starting point. Although the research field has been narrowed down to the agricultural machinery sector, attention has been paid to the cognitive value of work in relation to other sectors of the economy.

In the context of the conducted research, a catalog of barriers that significantly affect the implementation of innovations was indicated. An important point on the development map of the surveyed enterprises will be meeting the challenges related to the barriers' elimination. It is on the part of enterprises to take appropriate actions aimed at increasing efficiency and creating new management models.
