The project was coordinated by our Center for Business Studies and fills directly its mission, that is to conduct research to help us better understand and transform organizations and the business environment in Brazil. To perform this role, the Center fosters interaction between researchers and the production sector by organizing events and publishing research, indicators and guides. Through these instruments, the Center encourages and participates in the debate on business environment, practices and policies to boost the competitiveness and productivity of the economy.
The report brings the results of a pioneer research in Brazil. Executives of 80 companies with revenues over R$ 1 billion in Brazil shared their information on their profile, skills, tools, structure and processes in strategy management. This sample is extremely valuable to bring us important insights and hypothesis for future researches on this theme. I would call your attention to specific results on structure, tools and gender issues.
