Journal of Administration Sciences and Economics has published the latest work of Javier Fernando Del Carpio-Gallegos, Dean of the Engineering Faculty at ESAN University and Francesc Miralles, Academic Dean at Innova Institute, La Salle – Ramon Llull University: "Qualitative approach about innovation determinants in an emerging economy".
Manufacturing companies strive to be innovative and competitive. These companies are very important in an emerging economy due to their contribution to a country’s gross domestic product and job creation.
Therefore, the objective of this article is to identify the internal and external factors that improve the innovation capacity of Peruvian manufacturing companies and, in turn, favor their competitiveness. A qualitative approach was applied based on the Glaser «six-C model», which is part of the grounded theory; for this, managers of the Peruvian manufacturing companies were interviewed. From the analysis and processing of this data with Atlas ti® qualitative analysis software (QDA), it was found that suppliers and customers provide valuable information to innovate; additionally, the application of the design and the acquisition of machinery favor the innovations of these companies.
To that extent, this qualitative study contributes to identify those factors that help Peruvian manufacturing companies improve their innovation capacity. Thus, manufacturing companies’ managers must identify those factors that favor the implementation of innovations to make their companies more competitive.
