Relations Between Knowledge Management, Revenues and Numbers of Employees in Companies Graduated by Incubators.
Keywords:Knowledge Management, Revenues, Number of Employees, Graduated Companies.
AbstractThe article analyzes the existence of similarities between companies graduated in incubators with regard to the perceived effectiveness of some Knowledge Management (KM) practices in relation to the number of employees and revenues. This study was elaborated from the findings that there is a lack of researches that seek to associate KM to the number of employees, as well as the companies’ revenues. Furthermore, a research was applied in graduated companies by incubators, because of their importance in the creation of sustainable organizations. This is a quantitative analysis, performed with bivariate tests. The results indicate that, in 66.67% of the cases, the most effective perceptions of KM practices were found in companies that have more employees. In relation to revenues, the pattern repeats itself in only 40% of the groups formed by this variable. Although in the remaining cases there were no statistically significant differences, in the absolute majority of cases, the greater perceptions of efficacy are associated to organizations that reported a greater number of employees, as well as to those that belong to the higher revenues classes.
