SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH - Research Interests

As academic researcher in the study field of Management Information Systems (MIS) - or in short, Information Systems (IS), or Administração de Sistemas de Informação (ADI), as this field is known in Brazil - belonging to Management knowledge area [of the major area of Applied Social Sciences], Prof. Favaretto has interest in the research themes addressed to Innovation, Data Science and Technology, as well as Education and Popularization of Science & Technology (S&T), as follows:


Innovation, Data Science and Technology

Diffusion of Technology and Innovation in Organizations

Academic research based on Innovation Diffusion Theory, coming from the area of knowledge of Sociology (Rogers, 2003). It also uses the mathematical modeling of the diffusion of technologies over time (Bass, 1969), for the observation and evaluation of S-curve or sigmoid adjustment, and their comparison, analysis and prediction of future performance among models discussed in the academic literature (Bass, Gompertz and Logistic).

Data Science for Organizational decision making

Construction of quantitative models using differential equations, multivariate statistical techniques (multiple regression, binary logistic regression, cluster analysis, ANOVA), modeling with structural equations (PLS-SEM) and panel data analysis. Data scraping (selection of primary / secondary data sources, collection, filtering and integration), exploratory analysis, interpretation of results and strategic use of data Analytics for organizational decision making.

Stage Level of ICT/IS in Organizations

Academic research based on the Stages of Growth Theory and the study field of Information Systems (IS), from the seminal article of Richard Nolan (Nolan, 1973). It seeks to identify the Stage Level of Information and Communication Technology/Information Systems (ICT/IS) initiatives in contemporary Organizations (Favaretto, 2019; Favaretto, 2015; Favaretto & Meirelles, 2015). It allows the issuing of an informative Report and Diagnostic in real time, containing 6 pages (A4 format) for the respondents. Participation in this survey is restricted to guests only. To apply for an invitation, request yours here.

Digital Business Transformation

The Big Data Era, cloud connectivity, mobility, social media, and innovative business models have quickly accelerated the Digital Transformation and Disruption of many market sectors, causing direct impact on Organizational Performance. New technologies based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, Data Analytics, and Internet of Things (IoT) - in the world of Bots, Cognitive Computing and Big Data Analytics - bring more challenges to the adequacy of corporate strategy and the pursuit of competitive advantage. This research, based on empirical study (primary and secondary data), wants to analyze how Digital Transformation can increase Organizational Performance.


Education and Popularization of Science & Technology (S&T)

Productivity, Rigor and Relevance in Scientific Research

Improve reliability, efficiency and effectiveness in the development of scientific research. Improvement of key elements of the scientific procedure: method, reproducibility, organization of bibliographic references, correct use of scientific databases, generation of reports. Structuring of qualified research, with rigor (theoretical and methodological robustness), academic relevance (research generated with real contribution to the field / study community, seeking a high number of citations) and applied relevance (generate some direct benefit for people, organizations or impact on society).

Dimensions of Research Internationalization

This study is based on the three dimensions of the internationalization of research proposed by Diniz, Favaretto, Oliveira, & Brólio (2017a, 2017b) - Academic education, Dissemination of the scientific publication and Collaboration in research networks - and is expanded by a fourth dimension: the Institutional - analyzing the incentives practiced both internally, by the Researcher's own Institution of Higher Education, and externally, via incentives from governmental research agencies (Diniz, Oliveira, Favaretto, e Brólio, 2018a, 2018b).

Assessment and Indicators of Scientific Production

Research that seeks a broad literature review of topics related to Academic / Scientific Production. It intends to list and elaborate indicators for the measurement and assessment of the Scientific Production of groups of academics (teachers and researchers). Brings the creation and development of an on-line software (cloud system), which will use the automation of tasks to facilitate the periodic execution of such procedure to the Postgraduate Programs (PPGs) of Brazil.

History & Philosophy of Science

The evolution of Science in Brazil. The research funding agencies: CAPES, CNPq, FAPESP. Postgraduate programs in masters and doctorates. The Brazilian scientists. History of the field of research of Information System (Brazil and world). The paradigms of science based on the vision of Thomas Kuhn.

HIGHER EDUCATION - Disciplines of Interest

Disciplines content driven to stricto sensu Postgraduate courses (Academic and Professional Master's or Doctorate), lato sensu Post-Graduate courses (MBA, Executive Postgraduate, Master in Business and Management, Specialization), or Undergraduate courses. The contents of the courses can be adapted to the WorkShop or In Company Training format.


Principles of Multivariate Data Analysis

Understand the cycle of the stages for performing multivariate data analysis to transform available events/data from organizational day to day activities into useful information for decision making. Perform exploratory analyzes on datasets with the construction of graphs (visual representation of data), tables, and application of basic statistical techniques. Practice the investigative and interpretative perception [of the results obtained] in the process of data analysis. Software used in the analysis: R, Python and Julia.


Methodology in the Structuring of Academic Projects

Literature review (theoretical basis). Method. Results, Analysis and Discussion. Research Limitations / Future Studies. Conclusion - Contribution and Implications. Appendix / Annexes.


Productivity in Academic / Scientific Research

How to transform the arduous task of scientific writing into a grouping of processes to be followed, starting with the access and consultation of adequate academic databases, a relevant and extensive literature review, the organization of the material used in the research, the automation of the insertion of references and citations in the manuscript, the selection of the appropriate scientific journal / conference for the publication of the thematic studied, the finalization of the manuscript and its respective submission, the follow-up of the evaluation process, the adequate feedback to the reviewers' requests for adjustments / changes in the manuscript until its publication.


Scientific Thought and Paradigm of Science

Development of scientific thought as a preliminary step to the methodological structuring of scientific projects / articles. How to adapt the insertion of the researcher and his research in the scientific paradigm where he wants to act. Understanding the interaction structure of the scientific community (network of researchers) and the main perceptions of how science is constructed. Procedure to identify seminal contents of the studied subject, its theoretical bases, the grouping of its main authors, to the perception of the gap to be studied, and the identification of the relevant theoretical contribution to the paradigm.
