DACIE, Franciele do Prado; ESPEJO, Márcia Maria dos Santos Bortolocci; GIMENEZ, Fernando Antonio Prado  e  CAMACHO, Reinaldo Rodrigues. Are similar ones different? Determinant characteristics of management tool usage within companies sharing the same institutional environment. Rev. Adm. (São Paulo) [online]. 2017, vol.52, n.3, pp.341-352. ISSN 1984-6142.  https://doi.org/10.1016/j.rausp.2017.05.006.

Technical literature describes local productive arrangements (LPAs) as an institution. It also states that existing interaction links within their members foster them to act quite similarly. However, entrepreneurs and their characteristic attributes tend to distinguish their decisions. Therefore, according to such, this research examined if entrepreneur psychological characteristics would be able to influence management practices and the performance of companies sharing the same institutional environment. This study follows such objectives via an epistemologically positivist approach – quantitative view – and data gathering through forms used in 121 firms from clothing industry LPA in Parana Northwest. The research model has been tested through structural equation modelling techniques. Amongst findings, it may be observed management control practices have a 46.42% positive effect on company performance. Characteristics of entrepreneurial orientation have been able to positively influence the usage of management controls in 38.38%, and company performance in 14.90%. However, no statistical inferences regarding the individual's metacognitive ability of predicting the variables of entrepreneurial orientation, management controls and company performance have been carried out.
