International technology transfer and the irruptive processes: an analysis model for the offset policy
by Myller Augusto Santos Gomes; João Luiz Kovaleski
International Journal of Technology Transfer and Commercialisation (IJTTC), Vol. 16, No. 2, 2018

Abstract: The term 'offset' refers to a set of mechanisms inserted in a modality of compensated trade that seeks to insert counterparts in the commercial transaction from the seller to the buyer. In developing countries, such practice is in some cases institutionalised as policies, which represent an outlet in the acquisition of technologies from developed countries. In this context, the international technology transfer occurs in an unstable way in certain populations, with the proposal of modifying work situations and increasing the performance of the organisations to which they are destined. Then, the anthropotechnological analysis can be an adequate field of analysis. The objective of this work is to propose a framework capable of analysing the anthropotechnological perspective in the workplace, modified by the international technology transfer promoted by the offset policy.
