Abstract: 
In this article we tried to synthesize the existing literature on organizational legitimacy, showing its importance for business development. The article's central argument suggests the existence of certain organizational actions whose development address legitimacy to organizations. At the same time, legitimacy promotes access to strategic resources, necessary for organizations, allowing its growth and survival. We also review different types of legitimacy as well as a set of strategies to acquire, maintaining and repair legitimacy.
