    This paper presents the main messages of a South American expert roundtable (ERT) on the unintended side effects (unseens) of digital transformation. The input of the ERT comprised 39 propositions from 20 experts representing 11 different perspectives. The two-day ERT discussed the main drivers and challenges as well as vulnerabilities or unseens and provided suggestions for: (i) the mechanisms underlying major unseens; (ii) understanding possible ways in which rebound effects of digital transformation may become the subject of overarching research in three main categories of impact: development factors, society, and individuals; and (iii) a set of potential action domains for transdisciplinary follow-up processes, including a case study in Brazil. A content analysis of the propositions and related mechanisms provided insights in the genesis of unseens by identifying 15 interrelated causal mechanisms related to critical issues/concerns. Additionally, a cluster analysis (CLA) was applied to structure the challenges and critical developments in South America. The discussion elaborated the genesis, dynamics, and impacts of (groups of) unseens such as the digital divide (that affects most countries that are not included in the development of digital business, management, production, etc. tools) or the challenge of restructuring small- and medium-sized enterprises (whose service is digitally substituted by digital devices). We identify specific issues and effects (for most South American countries) such as lack of governmental structure, challenging geographical structures (e.g., inclusion in high-performance transmission power), or the digital readiness of (wide parts) of society. One scientific contribution of the paper is related to the presented methodology that provides insights into the phenomena, the causal chains underlying “wanted/positive” and “unwanted/negative” effects, and the processes and mechanisms of societal changes caused by digitalization.

  • Estrutura de capital e peculiaridades regionais nas cooperativas agropecuárias do Paraná - Brasil
    Jessé Aquino Rodrigues, Gerson José Lauermann, Vilmar Rodrigues Moreira, Alex Antônio Ferraresi and Alceu Souza

    Revista de Economia e Sociologia Rural, ISSN: 01032003, Pages: 213-224, Published: 1 April 2018 Sociedade Brasileira de Economia e Sociologia Rural
    Resumo: Este estudo tem por objetivo caracterizar a estrutura de capital das cooperativas agropecuárias paranaenses e suas peculiaridades regionais. Foram analisados os contextos históricos regionais e as formas de capitalização vis-à-vis os processos de colonização de imigrantes europeus e de outros estados brasileiros e os projetos regionais de desenvolvimento. Para tal, foi utilizada uma amostra intencional das 43 cooperativas paranaenses que, juntas, representam 99,5% do faturamento total do ramo. As peculiaridades regionais foram analisadas por meio de Análise de Variância (ANOVA) e mapeamento perceptual. Conclui-se que é possível identificar agrupamentos de cooperativas segundo estratégias de capitalização e características regionais. Dentre as regiões analisadas, as cooperativas da região oeste do estado do Paraná, por terem maior nível de industrialização, possuem maior necessidade de capital de giro, enquanto a maioria das cooperativas do centro-sul do estado apresenta tesouraria positiva. Uma limitação do estudo é que, sem entender qual modelo poderia ser eleito o melhor para o setor, a questão da estrutura ótima de capital ainda permanece aberta para as cooperativas agropecuárias.

  • Relationships among Knowledge Management, Organisational Innovativeness and Performance: Covariance-Based Versus Partial Least-Squares Structural Equation Modelling
    José Roberto Frega, Alex Antonio Ferraresi, Carlos Olavo Quandt and Claudimar Pereira Da Veiga

    Journal of Information and Knowledge Management, ISSN: 02196492, Published: 1 March 2018 World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte
    The relationships among effective knowledge management (KM), organisational innovativeness (OI), market orientation (MO) and organisational performance (OP) have been explored in the literature. These constructs are generally analysed in pairs, such as the influence of KM on OI, or KM on OP, and other combinations, but the relationships among the full set of constructs in question are not fully understood yet. In the extant literature, the relationships among them are analysed for the most part with covariance-based structural equation modelling (CB-SEM). Partial least-squares (PLS) path modelling is a component-based approach to SEM that is not as widely used as CB-SEM, but it has the potential to allow increased flexibility in handling various modelling problems in comparison with CB models, particularly for predictive and exploratory purposes. This paper aims to verify whether the PLS method could confirm or reject the results of the more restrictive covariance-based method in modelling the relationships among KM, OI, MO and OP. The results indicate that both methods yielded convergent and discriminant validity for the constructs, displaying stability across model analysis and depuration. The PLS model revealed the influence of KM on MO, OI and OP. It also shows that OI is the main driving factor for OP. KM seems to have a direct effect on OP, which is greatly magnified when mediated by OI. The sample size, although borderline adequate for the CB method, was more than adequate for PLS, yielding excellent model stability.

  • Dimensions of organizational innovativeness and its impact on innovation performance: Proposition and evaluation of a model
    Carlos Olavo Quandt, Cicero Aparecido Bezerra and Alex Antônio Ferraresi

    Gestao e Producao, ISSN: 0104530X, eISSN: 18069649, Pages: 873-886, Published: October-December 2015 Brazilian Institute for Information in Science and Technology
    O estudo propõe um modelo teórico que representa as condições organizacionais habilitadoras da inovação (definido, no estudo, como inovatividade) e avalia o impacto no desempenho inovador. Emprega-se a correlação canônica como forma de avaliar a capacidade do modelo em explicar a variação do desempenho inovador em 120 organizações de médio e grande porte localizadas, em sua maioria, no sul do Brasil. Os resultados indicam que as condições identificadas são consistentes em expressar as melhorias inovadoras nas empresas pesquisadas. Além disto, os resultados sugerem que organizações inovadoras que desenvolvem aspectos da cultura organizacional, liderança e processos de aprendizagem, apresentam desempenho superior no desenvolvimento e implantação de inovações.

  • Knowledge management and strategic orientation: Leveraging innovativeness and performance
    Alex A. Ferraresi, Carlos O. Quandt, Silvio A. dos Santos and José R. Frega

    Journal of Knowledge Management, ISSN: 13673270, Pages: 688-701, Published: September 2012 Emerald
    Purpose – The aim of this study is to investigate whether knowledge management (KM) contributes to the development of strategic orientation and to enhance innovativeness, and whether these three factors contribute to improve business performance. Design/methodology/approach – A sample of 241 Brazilian companies was surveyed, using Web-based questionnaires with 54 questions, using ten-point scales to measure the degree of agreement on each item of each construct. Structural equation modeling techniques were applied for model assessment and analysis of the relationships among constructs. Exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, and path analysis using the technique of structural equation modeling were applied to the data. Findings – Effective KM contributes positively to strategic orientation. Although there is no significant direct effect of KM on innovativeness, the relationship is significant when mediated by strategic orientation. Similarly, effective KM has no direct effect on business performance, but this relationship becomes statistically significant when mediated by strategic orientation and innovativeness. Research limitations/implications – The findings indicate that KM permeates all relationships among the constructs, corroborating the argument that knowledge is an essential organizational resource that leverages all value-creating activities. The results indicate that both KM and innovativeness produce significant impacts on performance when they are aligned with a strategic orientation that enables the organization to anticipate and respond to changing market conditions. Originality/value – There is a substantial body of research on several types of relationships involving KM, strategic orientation, innovativeness and performance. This study offers an original contribution by analyzing all of those constructs simultaneously, using established scales so that comparative studies are possible.
