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> Rosileine Mendonça de Lima Victor Silva Corrêa Pedro Lucas de Resende Melo Vania Maria Jorge Nassif Maria Carolina Silva de Arruda Copyright (c) 2024-03-08 2024-03-08 21 2 e220157 e220157 10.1590/1807-7692bar2024220157 Does Public Governance Impact Performance? An Analysis of Higher Education Institutions in Brazil <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> Lindomar Pinto da Silva Copyright (c) 2024-04-19 2024-04-19 21 2 e230181 e230181 10.1590/1807-7692bar2024230181 Promoting Performance Measurement System Effectiveness in Higher Education Institution: Antecedents and Consequences <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> Ietje Nazaruddin Hafiez Sofyani Tiyas Puji Utami Copyright (c) 2024-04-19 2024-04-19 21 2 e230070 e230070 10.1590/1807-7692bar2024230070 Intelligence as an Innovation in Public Management: Premises for Institutionalization <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> Claudia Melati Raquel Janissek-Muniz Copyright (c) 2024-04-29 2024-04-29 21 2 e230067 e230067 10.1590/1807-7692bar2024230067 Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs): Field of Research and Avenues for Future Studies <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> Douglas Wegner Rovian Dill Zuquetto Fernando Correa Grisi Copyright (c) 2024-05-20 2024-05-20 21 2 e23183 e23183 10.1590/1807-7692bar2024230183
