Factor Analysis On Innovation Inductors In High Performance Organizations

Pedro Carlos Resende Junior, Ricardo Ken Fujihara


There are several awards and models of quality and innovation applied around the world. The problem studied is that many organizations present different dimensions and scales for the evaluation of organizational innovation and analysis for the innovative recognition of companies. The article aims to present, through the exploratory and confirmatory factorial analysis, the main inducing factors of organizational innovation in a set of 19 Brazilian companies, from the public and private sectors, with nationally recognized performance. The research integrates the methodology of evaluation of awards, norms and models of innovation - APMNI. The research is characterized as mixed approach (qualitative and quantitative) through data collection with interviews and survey, submitted to content analysis and multivariate statistics. The results indicate that all factorial models (2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 factors) were consistent in light of the statistical analysis. The results indicate that all factorial models (2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 factors) were consistent with statistical analysis. It is concluded that the most adequate explanatory model was the one with four inducing innovation factors: PD&I Management Model; Top Management; Innovation Culture and Innovation Strategies.
