José Francisco de Carvalho Rezende Joaquim Rubens Fontes Filho About the authors

This paper is placed in the context of comparative analyzes of efficiency between private and state companies and discusses differences regarding the strategic alignment and value creation management procedures on those enterprises, allowing to obtain evidence about "types" of alignment and value origination management "modes". From hypothetical-deductive approach, we used information from the survey previously applied to 95 Brazilian organizations, now stratified according to the origin of capital, private or state. We tested hypotheses about the existence of mean differences in strategic alignment vectors, on the existence of different proportions of types of state and private companies with respect to patterns of value origination and the behavior of the components of the total value created. The tests presented on a recurring basis, mean differences in favor of private enterprise, with results displayed from the confidence interval above 85%, satisfactory when taking into consideration that this is an exploratory study. Also regarding the origination value, was found superior performance of private equity firms in all dimensions/perspectives. Faced with the findings and the relevance of state enterprises, it is expected that the evidence to enable a new performance approach of organizations managed by the state, triggering mechanisms for monitoring performance more in line with the management challenges of contemporary organizations.
