Technological Factors Determining the Dynamics of Innovation and Skills Development: A Study with Brazilian Multinational

Priscila Rezende da Costa, Geciane Silveira Porto

Abstract


The overall objective was to evaluate the technological elements that determine the results of the Brazilian Multinationals cooperability (MNB). Regarding research methodology, we carried out a survey among the universe of MNB, with a final sample of 60 companies answered a structured questionnaire. The quantitative data analysis was conducted using the software SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) version 17.0., Statistical tests were performed Cronbach's alpha, factor analysis, Correlation, the Principal Component and Multiple Regression. The results of the study showed the profile of the MNB and enabled the evaluation of the elements of the technological trajectory and technological inputs that affect the results of cooperability.

Keywords


Technological Elements; Dynamic Capabilities; Brazilian Multinationals.
