Abstract


El presente artículo corresponde a un tipo cualitativo de investigación cuya finalidad es representar el fenómeno del intraemprendimiento en cuanto a su conceptualización y caracterización por medio del análisis documental, así como la aplicación, transcripción, codificación y análisis de 11 entrevistas realizadas a personas relacionadas al emprendimiento en la empresa en la zona noreste de México. Las interacciones con los sujetos de investigación derivaron en la categorización de códigos de primer y segundo orden en cuanto a connotación atribuida por el entrevistado al término (CO) y las características de percepción normativa en términos de recursos y capacidades de las empresas intraemprendedoras (CA). Los subcódigos atribuidos a tales familias permitieron un contraste entre la información derivada de las aportaciones de los sujetos de investigación y el conocimiento teórico-empírico existente.


Keywords
