Article Abstract
Management Indicators and Measurement of Innovation: Review of the Literature
Keywords:  management indicators, measurement of results, innovation
Hugo Ferreira Braga Tadeu and Jersone Tasso Moreira Silva
Several studies have demonstrated the necessity of indicators for innovation management, so as to control investments in R&D with greater efficiency. Nevertheless, the review of the literature suggests that the debate on the theme is still very incipient. In this sense, this study has for its object the answer to the following questions: (i) what does the review of the literature say on innovation management indicators? and (ii) how does one measure the results of innovation? To answer the 2 (two) questions, innovation management is analysed as a consequence of the market context and of the organizational strategy, being broken down into indicators. The methodology proposed is qualitative, resulting from searches in international periodicals. It suggests that rates of innovation are greatest when the innovation strategy is well understood and the alignment with other business areas more effective, being something more relevant than solely technological innovation. The conceptual model obtained is theoretical, and may be broken down into new studies for various sectors of interest and with different results.
