Explorando as características da capacidade de inovação de firmas em atividades produtivas de baixa intensidade tecnológica

Resumo


O artigo analisa a capacidade de inovação de firmas de baixa intensidade tecnológica, com base no ‘Modelo das Capacidade de Inovação’. O Modelo compreende a capacidade de inovação da firma a partir de quatro outras: desenvolvimento, operação, gestão e transação. Para tanto, foi realizada uma pesquisa de campo em duas firmas agroindustriais da região dos Campos de Cima da Serra no Rio Grande do Sul/Brasil. As firmas investigadas apresentaram as quatro capacidades previstas no modelo, sendo que uma delas se destacou em cada firma: a capacidade de transação na primeira empresa e a de operação na segunda. Não houve destaque para a capacidade de desenvolvimento, como previsto para firmas de baixa intensidade tecnológica, mas isso não significa que as firmas não tenham rotinas que envolvam a inovação. Essa visão mais abrangente da capacidade de inovação, proporcionada pelo modelo utilizado, contribui para complementar os estudos sobre a complexa natureza do processo inovativo nas firmas. Os resultados apontam também para a necessidade de repensar alguns aspectos do modelo e aplicá-lo novamente no contexto low-tech.
