This research aims to explore literature about capabilities and project management, in the context of industry 4.0 manufactures, to identify research opportunities in project management.</p> <p><strong>Methodology / Approach: </strong>A Systematic Literature Review (SLR) analyzed 55 articles discussing project capabilities developed by industry 4.0 manufactures.</p> <p><strong>Originality / Value:</strong> This study fills a research gap, as no literature review has reported state of the art knowledge about project capabilities in the context of industry 4.0.</p> <p><strong>Findings:</strong> Project capabilities were summarized in six perspectives: project management, business models, innovation, skills of project professionals, technologies, and data management. Project management surfaces as a structural capability to implement industry 4.0. Besides, collaboration among parties amalgamates companies in new business models, as well as project professionals and teams while they implement new processes, products, and technologies.</p> <p><strong>Theoretical implications:</strong> This study uncovers opportunities for future research related to customer and data-centered business transformations of industry 4.0, including how to manage projects in collaborative business networks and implement fast-paced innovation.</p> Danielle Cruz Paiva, Roque Rabechini Jr. Copyright (c) 2021 Future Studies Research Journal: Trends and Strategies https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/581 Sat, 01 Jan 2022 00:00:00 -0300 How does training contribute to organizational innovation? New research avenues https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/611 <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> In this study the aim is to propose a research agenda about how training activities contribute to organizational innovation results, based on an integrative and systematic review of a scientifically relevant literature portfolio.</p> <p><strong>Methodology/approach</strong>: Based on relevant literature selected after applying <em>Methodi Ordinatio </em>structured protocol, a state of knowledge systematic literature review was carried out on studies about the relationship between training activities and organizational innovation. Theoretical and methodological content categories were analyzed comprising articles published in databases indexed on <em>Portal de Periódicos da CAPES</em>.</p> <p><strong>Originality/value: </strong>After systematic reviewing relevant literature about the relationship between training effects and organizational innovation, this study proposes new research avenues focusing to address identified state of knowledge research gaps. These new research possibilities can guide advancements on the field by contributing for better phenomenon comprehension.</p> <p><strong>Findings: </strong>The studies analyzed are primarily based on measures focused on the organizational level and predominantly quantitative. The most used data source were perceptual measures compared with econometric data focused on organizational results, and training effects were measured only on a post-fact transversal approach.</p> <p><strong>Theoretical and methodological contributions: </strong>New relevant research avenues based on state of knowledge research gaps are presented, aiding the field to advance. The use of <em>Methodi Ordinatio </em>structured protocol contributes to methodologically advance in this kind of research by supporting the selection of relevant bibliographic portfolio.</p> Sérgio Gonçalves, Gardênia Abbad Copyright (c) 2022 Sérgio Gonçalves, Gardênia Abbad https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/611 Sun, 27 Feb 2022 00:00:00 -0300 A relação entre a divulgação de inovação e assimetria de informação no Brasil https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/489 <p>O estudo buscou analisar as estratégias de divulgação da inovação realizada pelas companhias brasileiras de capital aberto e verificar seus impactos sobre a assimetria de informação. As estratégias de divulgação da inovação foram analisadas através de 71 relatórios anuais emitidos por companhias brasileiras negociadas na B3. Através de análise de conteúdo, identificaram-se seis categorias de análise: Estratégia focada em inovação, Objetivos da inovação, Alianças realizadas, Planejamento financeiro da inovação, Resultados da inovação, e Prêmios obtidos. Através de modelagem de equações estruturais bayesiana, verificou-se que as divulgações sobre estratégias, alianças realizadas, planejamento financeiros e os prêmios alcançados podem reduzir a assimetria.</p> Renata Braga Berenguer de Vasconcelos, Joséte Florencio dos Santos Copyright (c) 2022 Future Studies Research Journal: Trends and Strategies https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/489 Sat, 01 Jan 2022 00:00:00 -0300 Collaboration and Knowledge Transfer Among the Innovation Ecosystem Actors https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/660 <p><strong>Objetivo:</strong> O propósito deste estudo é investigar como a colaboração entre os atores do ecossistema de inovação se relaciona com a transferência de conhecimento entre as instituições.</p> <p><strong>Referencial Teórico:</strong> Utiliza-se a teoria da gestão do conhecimento, agregando os modelos das hélices (tripla, quádrupla e quíntupla) e os conceitos de ecossistema de inovação.</p> <p><strong>Método:</strong> As unidades de estudo são os polos de inovação dos Institutos Federais de Educação, credenciados pela Embrapii.

After using some refinement criteria, 84 articles were analyzed.</p> <p><strong>Originality / Relevance</strong>: Even though the literature on intention has been investigated for many years, the particular dynamics of the Sharing Economy phenomenon offers new challenges and research opportunities that bring the need to better understand the relationship between the subjects. That said, this work presents an analysis of this relationship.</p> <p><strong>Main results</strong>: The results reveal that interest in the subjects is recent, which explains the fact that there is no prominent journal or author on the subjects. Despite this, one of the main topics researched was the factors that affect, influence, impact, explain or predict intention. Still, it is seen that most of the studies tend to use the same approaches, whether they are the research of carpool services and shared accommodation, the survey method and the use of TPB and TRA theories, which provides opportunities for research.</p> <p><strong>Theoretical contributions</strong>: The main contribution of this study is the understanding of how the themes “intention” and “sharing economy” have been studied over time, and some research gaps can be observed.</p> Natália Pavanelo Pivetta, Flavia Luciane Scherer, Soraya de Souza Soares Copyright (c) 2022 Natália Pavanelo Pivetta, Flavia Luciane Scherer, Soraya de Souza Soares https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/639 Thu, 25 Aug 2022 00:00:00 -0300 PROSPECTING PHARMACEUTICAL RETAIL SCENARIOS IN FRANCA/SP IN THE PERIOD 2020-2024 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/616 <p>At the end of the 19th century, the development of the pharmaceutical sector in Europe began, considered one of the industrial sectors that is most sustained on the basis of research and development. The IQVA Institute 2019 Report places Brazil as the seventh largest pharmaceutical market in the world, in the year 2018. Therefore, this study aims to develop prospective scenarios for the pharmaceutical sector, in the city of Franca/SP, in the period five years (2020-2024), providing important information for the sector's strategic planning. An exploratory and descriptive research was carried out, in several texts that address the theme, to support the prospecting of scenarios. The following were used: the Delphi method for data collection; the Blaining and Reinig Prospecting Model; and the Cross Impact Matrix to detect the driving forces of the sector. As a result, three probabilities of future scenarios for the sector are presented: Optimistic; Pessimistic; and Realistic.</p> Cecy de Sousa Lucas, Alfredo José Machado Neto Copyright (c) 2022 Cecy de Sousa Lucas, Alfredo José Machado Neto https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/616 Sun, 27 Feb 2022 00:00:00 -0300 Análise da evolução conceitual de stakeholders e competitividade em ciências sociais aplicadas e turismo https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/599 <div class="translate-tooltip-mtz hidden"> <div class="header"> <div class="header-controls"> <p><strong>Objetivo: </strong>O objetivo do estudo é mapear e descrever a evolução conceitual-teórica de stakeholders em relação à competitividade, apresentando as principais influências teóricas e as correntes teóricas fronteiriças da relação entre stakeholders e competitividade.</p> <p><strong>Método: </strong>Trata-se de uma pesquisa de natureza descritiva, realizada por meio de método quantitativo, utilizamos as técnicas bibliométricas de cocitação e acoplamento bibliográfico (pareamento) para mapear a estrutura intelectual que suporta os estudos da relação entre stakeholders e competitividade. Utilizamos a técnica estatística análise fatorial exploratória e o software de mapeamento de dados VOSviewer para analisar os 482 documentos de nossa amostra.</p> <p><strong>Originalidade/Relevância:</strong> A literatura sobre stakeholders e competitividade carece de estudos que examinem a relação entre esses termos. Diante da escassez de trabalhos que relacionem stakeholders e competitividade, este estudo busca preencher essa lacuna teórica mapeando e descrevendo o estoque de conhecimento sobre o tema.</p> <p><strong>Resultados: </strong>A análise de cocitação identificou cinco clusters, o cluster mais importante teve como viés principal investigar a competitividade de destinos turísticos e a teoria de stakeholders. O acoplamento bibliográfico identificou nove áreas temáticas que os estudos sobre stakeholders e competitividade estão se concentrando, a área que concentra mais estudos consiste na análise da competitividade de destinos turísticos.</p> <p><strong>Contribuições teóricas: </strong>A principal contribuição deste estudo é de caráter exploratório, uma vez que além de mapear a evolução teórica-conceitual, mais especificamente as principais influências teóricas, correntes teóricas existentes e as frentes teóricas atuais que estudam as temáticas stakeholders e competitividade o estudo fornece um ponto de partida para estudos futuros descritivos e causais sobretudo nos clusters formados no mapa de pareamento bibliográfico.</p> </div> <div class="translate-icons"> <p> </p> </div> </div> </div> Anderson Antônio De Lima, Thiago de Luca Sant'ana Ribeiro, Benny Kramer Costa Copyright (c) 2022 Future Studies Research Journal: Trends and Strategies https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/599 Sat, 01 Jan 2022 00:00:00 -0300 Português Português https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/623 <p><strong>Objetivo</strong>: O objetivo deste estudo é determinar de que maneira o empoderamento do consumidor, aproximado pelo Capital Social, é influenciado pela função de ajuste social das atitudes e congruência da marca com o Self em consumidores com senso de distância ao poder.</p> <p><strong>Método:</strong> Foi realizado um <em>survey</em> com dados analisados por meio de Modelagem de Equações Estruturais, com análise de mediação por meio do teste de Sobel, complementado por uma análise de classes latentes, para detalhar os perfis de empoderamento do consumidor no estudo.</p> <p><strong>Resultados: </strong>Os resultados indicaram que consumidores com distância ao poder podem se sentir empoderados quando as marcas se integram a sua identidade condicionados a função de ajuste social das atitudes. Entretanto, isto é menos premente para consumidores menos empoderados.</p> <p><strong>Conclusões</strong>: Este estudo contribui teoricamente para a literatura de empoderamento do consumidor, particularmente de consumidores vulneráveis, ausentes do consumo, como aqueles representados por um traço de distância ao poder, se propondo um modelo teórico para esta integração.</p> Português, Português, Português Português, Português Copyright (c) 2022 Jussara S.

For analysis, a content analysis technique was used.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The responsiveness to disruptive innovation increased and the level of consumer demand increased, there was also resistance to the changes undertaken that need to be better observed by managers. Contextual ambidexterity was developed with the construction of a high-performance behavioral context, with an unbalanced focus between performance and social support.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions: </strong>Despite the encouragement to create a high performance context, the company was not able to guarantee the organization's ability to contextual ambidexterity as a whole.</p> Lígia Maria Silveira Saito, Carlos Roberto Domingues Copyright (c) 2022 Lígia Maria Silveira Saito, Carlos Roberto Domingues https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/676 Sun, 31 Jul 2022 00:00:00 -0300 Prospective scenarios for offshore private banking firms serving Brazilians in 2040 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/632 <p><strong>Objective</strong>: This article aims to explore potential future scenarios for the offshore Private Banking industry serving Brazilian individuals, considering the increasing competition.</p> <p><strong>Methods:</strong> The research employs the Prospective Scenarios approach, including a Delphi panel with industry’s experts in two rounds of interviews.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>: The results indicated a consensus among the participants regarding two driving forces for the offshore Private Banking Industry: Regulation and Educational Challenges. The work builds four prospective scenarios for 2040: The Sky is the limit; Swimming against the Tide; The Dark Ages; and Too Much Openness Misses the Optimal Point.</p> <p><strong>Conclusions</strong>: The research concludes that Private Banking firms should closely monitor the main regulations that can impact their business. In addition, offshore Private Banking firms should invest in educating potential investors in Brazil, especially the rising affluent segment and the millennials demographic group, leveraging all the technological resources at their disposal. Both scholars and practitioners might also replicate the methodology used of prospective scenarios using Delphi (Lima, 2014; Skulmoski, Hartman &amp; Krahn, 2007) method to other sectors.</p> Daniel Pedrosa Sousa, Gilberto Sarfati Copyright (c) 2022 Daniel Pedrosa Sousa, Gilberto Sarfati https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/632 Wed, 20 Apr 2022 00:00:00 -0300 Confrontando futuros: a contribuição do planejamento de cenários para pequenas empresas https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/642 <p>Objective: on this research we sought to analyze the contribution of scenario planning to decision making in small companies in the Federal District. Thus, it aimed to explore a gap in this area of ​​knowledge where few empirical studies have been developed with companies of this size in Brazil.<br>Method: a qualitative participatory research was carried out with six small companies in the trade and services sector, applying the Global Business Network (GBN) method of scenario planning. The results were measured by interviews with the participants, in addition to the researcher's perception during the stages of this planning.</p> <p>Results: there was a concern with the country's economic situation in all scenarios built with the research subjects. All companies gained narratives about the future, with four of them showing superior decision making and the emergence of innovative ideas. However, only in one we observed a certain change in the mental model, the main purpose of this type of planning, according to authors on this topic. Issues such as cognitive barriers and concerns about present situations have compromised the work of exploring future possibilities.</p> <p>Conclusions: scenario planning can bring greater rationality to decision making in small companies, as seen in half of the participating companies. This can potentially help them overcome the high mortality rate they face in their first years of activity, as well as to better deal with future uncertainties.</p> Mauro Rodrigues, Paulo César Rodrigues Borges Copyright (c) 2022 Mauro Henrique Pinheiro Rodrigues, Paulo César Rodrigues Borges https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 https://www.futurejournal.org/FSRJ/article/view/642 Mon, 28 Feb 2022 00:00:00 -0300
