Some insights on Portuguese manufacturing companies

Abstract

Innovation is a complex phenomenon including technical and non-technical organizational aspects. The literature refers to technical innovations as those that affect the organizational technical system, while non-technical innovations can be understood as organizational innovations, comprising changes in the structure and processes derived from the implementation of new managerial practices and working principles such as teamwork in production, supply chain management and quality management systems. There are many studies on innovation which show that increased R&D activities lead to innovative products, and are the source of competitive advantage. The importance of organizational innovation has been proved in the literature however there has been little research on the methodological and monitoring approach in this field. Based on previous studies developed in Europe and data collected from the European Manufacturing Survey (EMS), this paper aims to analyze: (1) to which extent technological and organizational innovation concepts are diffused in the Portuguese manufacturing companies; (2) how the use of technological innovation concepts are interrelated to the use of organizational innovation concepts.
