Relationships of business strategies and organizational characteristics with innovation types: Application in service companies

Palabras clave: tipos de innovación, características organizacionales, estrategias de negocio.

Resumen

Varios autores sostienen que las prácticas de innovación dependen de las estrategias de negocio. Por consiguiente, las empresas deben configurar una estructura organizacional que facilite la coordinación de tareas y permita alcanzar los objetivos. En una muestra de 203 empresas de servicio se realizó un análisis de la influencia de las estrategias de negocio y de las características organizacionales en la innovación técnica y la innovación administrativa. Los resultados indican la existencia de una relación importante entre la estrategia de negocio y las innovaciones técnicas y administrativas. Además se encontró que las características organizacionales solo mostraron una relación significativa con la innovación técnica, pero no así con la innovación administrativa.
