In seeking this, it appropriates the literature on motivations, challenges, and drivers of female entrepreneurship to support the reflections. <strong>Method:</strong> This was a qualitative strategy. Seven women entrepreneurs who started ventures driven mainly by necessity in Brazil participated in this study.<strong> Results:</strong> Besides need for survival, other motivations influence business creation, including opportunities. The main challenges are reconciling work and family, access to resources, and a lack of human capital. The main driving factors are public and private entrepreneurial support programs and direct social relationships. <strong>Conclusion:</strong> The contributions are threefold. First, for the literature on entrepreneurial drivers, it expands the understanding of the factors that positively impact female entrepreneurship. Second, it contributes to the literature on entrepreneurial motivations, broadening the current understanding of pull and push factors. Finally, by identifying new entrepreneurial challenges, this study extends the possibilities of understanding the female entrepreneurial phenomena in other developing contexts besides Brazil.</p> 2024-03-08T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) Intelligence as an Innovation in Public Management: Premises for Institutionalization 2024-05-27T15:21:55+00:00 Claudia Melati Raquel Janissek-Muniz <p><strong>Objective:</strong> Intelligence in public management is recognized as an innovative approach that leverages technologies to enhance decision-making processes and facilitate democratic planning by establishing formal structures, engaging public servants and managers, and fostering social involvement for efficient data and information management. Despite its innovative potential, intelligence in public management requires legitimacy within government spheres. The objective of this study is to validate a model for the institutionalization of intelligence in public management, grounded in a theoretical framework encompassing ten dimensions of intelligence categorized into organizational structure, technological infrastructure, human capital, and social engagement. <strong>Methods:</strong> Employing quantitative research, data were collected through a survey conducted among managers and civil servants in the Brazilian context. <strong>Results:</strong> The results demonstrate a positive impact of the analyzed categories on the institutionalization of intelligence in public management, with human capital emerging as the most influential factor. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> This study underscores the significance of adopting an institutional perspective in structuring intelligence processes within public management, thereby offering avenues for theoretical advancement in the field and suggesting pathways toward establishing legitimacy for intelligence activities within government frameworks.</p> 2024-04-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) Promoting Performance Measurement System Effectiveness in Higher Education Institution: Antecedents and Consequences 2024-04-22T15:50:03+00:00 Ietje Nazaruddin Hafiez Sofyani Tiyas Puji Utami <p><strong>Objective:</strong> Different discussions have been carried out on effectiveness of performance measurement systems (PMS) in higher education institutions (HEI). Some lecturers assert that PMSs place excessive emphasis on bureaucratic procedures, diverting attention from their primary responsibilities, without contributing to performance. Therefore, this study aimed to analyze the factors influencing effectiveness of PMS implementation and explore the impact of the concept on lecturers’ motivation to enhance performance. <strong>Methods:</strong> We conducted a survey with 293 lecturers in Indonesia and employed structural equation modeling (SEM) to test the relationships included in the theoretical model. <strong>Results:</strong> The result showed that PMSs for development purposes indirectly affected effectiveness through rating and feedback system satisfaction, as well as organizational commitment. Meanwhile, PMSs for strategic purposes have a direct and indirect effect through self-monitoring and feedback system. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> The study implied the importance of considering the mediating role of rating and feedback system satisfactions, as well as organizational commitment, and self-monitoring, on the influence of PMSs for development and strategic goals. Furthermore, an effective PMS served to elevate lecturers’ motivation to excel in their performance.</p> 2024-04-19T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) Does Public Governance Impact Performance? An Analysis of Higher Education Institutions in Brazil 2024-05-15T20:24:44+00:00 Lindomar Pinto da Silva <p><strong>Objective:</strong> this study investigates how public governance practices influence the performance of public organizations. Defined as a mix of formal and informal mechanisms shaping decision-making in the public sector and encouraging diverse societal participation, public governance aims to enhance management effectiveness and governmental results. <strong>Methods:</strong> panel data regression analysis was applied to assess higher education institutions in Brazil across 2017, 2018, and 2021. Student scores in the National Performance Exam (ENADE) and the Performance Difference Indicator (IDD) were used as performance metrics and dependent variables while governance practices and the public governance index were used as independent variables. <strong>Results:</strong> the data collected at the Federal Court of Accounts (TCU) and the National Institute of Educational Studies and Research Anísio Teixeira (Inep) revealed a positive correlation between ‘monitoring user satisfaction’ and institutional performance, whereas the public governance index presented unexpected results. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> this investigation elicits deeper inquiries on the actual impact of public governance on the performance of public organizations, potentially guiding the implementation of governance actions within them</p> 2024-04-19T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs): Field of Research and Avenues for Future Studies 2024-07-15T13:04:39+00:00 Douglas Wegner Rovian Dill Zuquetto Fernando Correa Grisi <p><strong>Objective:</strong> this study aims to review the literature on DAOs in business administration and propose a framework for DAOs compared to the key features of market, hierarchy, and network governance forms and avenues for future research. <strong>Methods:</strong> we performed a systematic literature review in Scopus and Web of Science databases and identified 69 articles on DAOs published in or before March 2024 in the field of business and management. <strong>Results:</strong> we describe the main characteristics, opportunities, and challenges for DAOs. Our study also discusses how DAOs can be further explored and how they may or may not fit in different governance and organizational forms. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> we conclude by offering several guidelines to researchers who want to comprehend the phenomena of DAOs and contribute to theory and practice in business administration.</p> 2024-05-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 A Venture Perspective of Different Investor Effects in the Brazilian VC Market 2024-06-13T18:20:54+00:00 Raoni Arruda Bacelar da Silva Fábio de Oliveira Paula Jorge Ferreira da Silva <p><strong>Objective:</strong> Venture capital has garnered global interest, attracting policymakers, investors, and entrepreneurs. However, its implementation in emerging nations, particularly in the challenging seed-stage segment, requires adaptive strategies from investors. This article investigates whether these adaptations lead to performance differences among various VC investor types. <strong>Methods:</strong> We examine the impact of different investor types on the performance of seed-stage ventures in Brazil, comparing our findings to existing literature on the United States. Analyzing investments in the Brazilian seed-stage VC market from 2000 to September 2022, we evaluate outcomes for ventures supported by IVCs, CVCs, Angels, and Accelerators. <strong>Results:</strong> The results reveal significant disparities in the performance of these entities in Brazil compared to the United States. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> We conclude that these differences likely stem from unique Brazilian market dynamics that have shaped investor profiles and operational approaches distinct from those in developed nations.</p> 2024-05-29T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) Public Servants’ Voluntary Withdrawal Intention in the Careers of Federal Direct Public Administration in Brazil 2024-07-19T12:03:35+00:00 Ana Cláudia Alves de Medeiros Silva Elaine Rabelo Neiva <p><strong>Objective:</strong> Voluntary withdrawal intention (VWI) is the idealized process of leaving an organization. VWI can lead to a loss of institutional memory, higher costs for personnel replacement, and an overload on remaining staff. Drawing on unfolding and embeddedness theories, this study identifies a new mechanism linking negative shocks to turnover intention.<strong> Methods:</strong> The study supports the idea that organizational cynicism and professional achievement mediate the relationship between VWI and organizational change. Structural equation modeling was used with data from 378 federal public servants in Brazil. <strong>Results:</strong> The results indicate that organizational cynicism and professional achievement play a role in this relationship. The model explains 70.70% of the variance in VWI. <strong>Conclusions:</strong> These findings have implications for research on employee turnover intentions and people management, improving our understanding of predictors and<br>relationships. The study also explores both theoretical and practical implications, which are particularly important due to the limited research in the Brazilian federal public sector.</p> 2024-07-05T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c)
