Identificacion de grupos estrategicos en el sector hortofruticola espanol
AbstractRESUMEN: Este artï¿½culo ofrece los resultados de un estudio intra-sectorial destinado a identificar la existencia o no de vï¿½nculos entre la estrategia empresarial, el estilo de gestiï¿½n, la estructura organizativa y la actuaciï¿½n en el sector hortofrutï¿½cola espaï¿½ol utilizando el anï¿½lisis de grupos estratï¿½gicos como instrumento metodolï¿½gico. Los grupos estratï¿½gicos se formaron a partir de dimensiones claves de la orientaciï¿½n estratï¿½gica de las empresas. Los resultados obtenidos muestran que los niveles de rentabilidad no difieren de forma sistemï¿½tica entre los grupos estratï¿½gicos obtenidos. La heterogeneidad en la actuaciï¿½n estï¿½ influenciada por una alineaciï¿½n entre la cultura empresarial y la estructura organizativa. Una tendencia hacia una mayor "organicidad" y/o la adopciï¿½n de un estilo de gestiï¿½n emprendedor son factores ambos que tienden a contribuir hacia una mejora en la actuaciï¿½n general de la empresa. SUMMARY: This article reports the results of an intra-industry study that seeks to identify empirical regularities between firm strategy, management style, organisational structure and performance in the Spanish fresh fruit and vegetable industry using strategic group analysis. Groups were formed from key dimensions reflecting firms' strategic orientations. Performance levels did not differ systematically between strategic groups, but performance was found to be influenced by the alignment between entrepreneurial culture and organisational structure. A move towards greater flexibility and/or adopting an entrepreneurial style are both likely to contribute to an improvement in the overall performance of the firm.
