Innowacyjne kultury organizacyjne w grupach producentów rolnych

The primary aim of the research was to determine the conditions of four innovative organizational cultures within the network of agricultural producer groups (ad hoc, incubator, daredevils, performance). The objectives of auxiliary research included determination of dominant values and patterns of behavior within innovative organizational cultures of agricultural producer groups. For the purpose of achievement of the above mentioned objectives the perspective of functionalist and interpretative paradigm was applied, including the principle of triangulation (methodological and theoretical). The context of innovation culture was formed by quantitative data (indicators of group dynamics, legal form, number of innovations, the state of group relations) as well as qualitative data (opinions of the participants of different cultures on the significance of the terms “innovation” and “innovative measures” constraints / drivers of innovation; identification of stimulating innovation in agricultural producer groups, production profile). The research was conducted by means of a questionnaire conducted among agricultural producer groups in Małopolska in 2016. The analyses confirmed the most frequent occurrence of innovation in two cultures: daredevils and effectiveness. Innovation constraints of mainly external nature and the main initiators of innovation in agricultural producer groups were identified. The cultures studied were focused on priority tasks and recognition of any “action” as opposed to a total lack of commitment. The research also revealed dichotomous behaviour of members of the culture of innovation, reflected in both conservative and modern actions. The results show that the development (alteration) of the existing cultures can follow along revolutionary and evolutionary patterns.
