The aim of this paper is to suggest alternatives for positioning a developing country in the international eGov research. We conducted a literature review, examining both Brazilian and international publications. We analyzed the domain of collaboration in the field through a social network analysis of authors, institutions and countries. Our study identified that the discussions concerning eGov are predominant; there is more intense collaboration in the network of institutions than of authors; the co-authorship network reflects the existence of a select number of central authors and, not surprisingly, the study of eGov is centralized in the USA and UK. This study complements previous studies and provides further understanding on how authors, institutions and countries cooperate. The findings of the study are not limited to Brazil, other countries that have barriers to internalization of research can benefit from the data.

This article aimed to identify implications of eParticipation in the public policy cycle. This reflection was supported by a bibliographic study and analysis of the research conducted on eParticipation over the last 10 years. Based on this analysis, we found that although previous studies indicate the need to investigate the citizenry's potential to contribute to the formulation of public policies, few have included the public policy cycle in the context of eParticipation. It has also not yet been explained how the use of platforms changes or transforms the public policy process. There are few developed theories in the field of eParticipation. Thus, given the lack of depth in the literature on this topic and the possibility for achieving empowerment levels and more inclusive levels of participation, there are gaps to be considered in this context. A research agenda is suggested to address these outstanding questions. © 2017 ACM.

Special buyer-supplier relationships in high-tech companies that manufacture complex products are discussed. The Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer was investigated, a company that is known for its partner relationship strategy with its suppliers, especially when dealing the products of the ERJ145 and E-Jets families However, in its latest product line, it showed a different approach to relating with its suppliers, which led to investigate the rationales for every option in each product line. The research techniques used were direct observation, specialized journals within the area, website related to aircraft industry and associations, scientific papers, and company's documents. In addition, semi-structured interviews with current and former employees were conducted. The results show that despite the fact that large companies such as Boeing and Airbus have been using the partnership model of risk adopted by Embraer, it follows a contingency approach - there is no best way than the model of relationship with suppliers that depends on the specific characteristics of each project, the company , and the environment.

Although interest in the use of grounded theory methods has been increasing over the last decade, Urquhart, Lehmann, and Myers (2010) take note of the criticism that, in fact, such use has not yet produced higher levels of theory development in IS research. Along these lines, the current essay intends to make two main contributions. The first is to respond to the recent call for more studies developing grounded theorizing in IS research by providing a detailed description of the application of grounded theory methods in an emergent research area that combines IS and sustainability. The second, to extend current interpretations of grounded theory. 's basic characteristics by focusing on one important element: researchers. ' creativity. We argue that the role of researchers. ' creativity and imagination in the implementation of grounded theory methods has rarely been emphasized and should be the subject of further reflection. Although imagination is, from our perspective, inherent and crucial to any cognitive or intellectual process, the fact of being frequently neglected in IS research precludes its mobilization as a more purposeful influence in the process of building new theories. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

This study aims to problematize the issue of government transparency in federative states. As the Brazilian case is analyzed, it also approaches the question of territorial heterogeneity and its effects. Methodology consisted of comparative analysis of the transparency indexes among the three different spheres of government: municipalities, states and central government. Observation of 125 public administration websites reveals that the more limited the sphere of government, the lower the level of transparency is. In other words, Brazilian central government is more transparent than the state ones, and these, in turn, are more transparent than the municipal governments. These differences do not corroborate the maxim employed by supporters of the federalism that local governments tend to establish closer relations with citizens. Furthermore, integrated action among all the government spheres may be recommendable to obtain better transparency outcomes. © 2016 IEEE.

This article details a proposed platform for the selection and classification of Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) projects, in the context of the Energy Industry in Brazil, considering gains in terms of intangible assets for a given company. For this, the platform consists of a model structured in two parts. The first part (Part I) identifies the project's contribution estimated for a company's intangible assets portfolio, via trial project alignment with strategic demands elected by the company. In Part II, the platform aims to determine, in addition to the metrics traditionally used, e.g. NPV and IRR, the project's maturity level, through a designed classification typology, which is based on the value of the call option and NPV of the project cash flow. Our expectation is that the adoption of the proposed platform collaborates for the adoption of active management of RD&I projects' portfolio. © 2016 IEEE.


This article provides a reference frame of concepts in Supply Chain Sustainability Management (SCSM), helping future research in the attempt to integrate intra and interorganizational choices based on the aspects of sustainability in supply chains. It is a theoretical study and the methodological procedure adopted was the desk research, organized in two steps. Firstly, the theme study was analyzed in six international journals, totaling 53 articles between 1954 and 2009. This step generated an evolution of the area, helping to pinpoint trends. Secondly, six domestic journals were reviewed and 11 articles were selected between 1961 and 2009, resulting in an overview of the theme in the Brazilian academic context. The concept of GSCS appeared only in 2007, which shows the relevance of the topic; although this is a gathering of topics previously studied separately.

Created in 2012, it has trained over 1,500 individuals worldwide Milan, 14 February 2017 – Prysmian Group Academy — the corporate university of the world leader in the energy and telecom cable industry — is now in its fifth year of operation. Created in 2012, also thanks to a partnership with the SDA Bocconi School of Management, it has allowed over 1,500 individuals of various nationalities to receive training from 50 SDA Bocconi faculty members, an equally important group of professors from some of the world’s foremost business schools and over 180 senior employees who, as teachers, decided to make their knowledge and experience available to the company. The Academy is divided into two main areas. The first, the School of Management, aims at strengthening leadership and management skills. Created in partnership with SDA Bocconi, it currently also benefits from the collaboration of a solid international network of business schools that contribute to the development of the training programmes launched in the Group’s various regions: SMU (Singapore), Fudan University (China), University of South Carolina (USA), FGV EAESP (Brazil), Steinbeis University (Germany), Corvinus University (Hungary), ESADE (Spain), ESSEC (France), and Stockholm Business School (Sweden). The second is the Professional School, a technical school whose nine Academies by function and 35 courses are aimed at developing and strengthening skills through their transfer from the most senior staff to their younger counterparts. The School also draws on several of the Group’s centres of excellence, such as the Manufacturing Academy inaugurated at the plant in Mudanya (Turkey) in 2016. Prysmian was one of the first large Italian companies to found its own school dedicated to managerial and professional training, thus positioning itself as a major innovator in the field of company training. The Academy is a concrete tool for sharing managerial and technical best practices. Due to its international nature, it fosters an innovative, entrepreneurial approach to business and a shared spirit of diversity and integration. In addition, the spread of a common long-term strategic outlook encourages employee engagement from a sustainable perspective of talent growth within the organisation. With this in mind, a research project focusing on company dynamics by SDA Bocconi was added to the over 350 days of training. Seven case studies were conducted of the Group’s main strategic challenges in its various branches throughout the world, in addition to didactic tools, simulations and various studies of strategic innovation and M&A issues. “Above all with regard to our managerial training initiatives, we are highly satisfied with our partnership with SDA Bocconi and the results achieved in these first five years of the Prysmian Group Academy,” commented Fabrizio Rutschmann, SVP Human Resources & Organisation. “What sets a company apart are the individuals of which it is composed. This is why for us human capital is a strategic asset on which to base our present and build our future.” “For SDA Bocconi, Prysmian is a complete partner,” explained Markus Venzin, Senior Lecturer in Strategy at SDA Bocconi and Director of the Prysmian Group Academy. “Through our collaboration with the Group, we have developed new ways of increasing the impact of advanced training on learning at companies. However, our collaboration with Prysmian is very extensive, moving beyond the training process, and is based on a desire for deep mutual understanding.” Prysmian Group Prysmian Group is world leader in the energy and telecom cables and systems industry. With almost 140 years of experience, sales of about €7.5 billion in 2015, over 19,000 employees across 50 countries and 88 plants, the Group is strongly positioned in high-tech markets and offers the widest possible range of products, services, technologies and know-how. It operates in the businesses of underground and submarine cables and systems for power transmission and distribution, of special cables for applications in many different industries and of medium and low voltage cables for the construction and infrastructure sectors. For the telecommunications industry, the Group manufactures cables and accessories for voice, video and data transmission, offering a comprehensive range of optical fibres, optical and copper cables and connectivity systems. Prysmian is a public company, listed on the Italian Stock Exchange in the FTSE MIB index.
