Abstract

The most important benefit of this investigation is the identification of the best capacities and managerial practices, used by multinational companies on the global economic market, in its application as a mechanism of learning and management of personnel. This study defines the spectrum of universal managerial practices and investigates the capacities that are related with the management of the business. The proposed models ([4cC] managerial management and [4cP] management of personnel) have been empirically validated under the theory of resources and capacities. The empirical multivariate analysis and the demonstration of the raised hypotheses, indicates that if these managerial practices are applied consistently with the resources and capacities of the organization (internal adjustment) and they are congruent to the strategy of the business (external adjustment), they create dynamics and interdependency with the capacity of management of personnel, through processes of continuous learning, resulting in positive organizational impacts.
