Abstract:The aim of this paper is to show the results of a survey that the University Consortium in Engineering for Quality and Innovation has led. A sample of Italian manufacturing companies was selected in order to verify the abilities to manage the human resources effectively; the spreading level of an effective and aware Leadership and the ability of strategic planning according to of a correct identification of the objectives. Moreover an alternative estimation approach; based on the maximization of the entropy function; is presented for estimating the parameters of the model presented. The data collected was analyzed with a multidimensional statistical method based on a Generalized Maximum Entropy (GME) estimation approach. This method is widely used in linear modelling and is presented here by considering a new algorithm for the estimation of the parameters of the model. Moreover; the data are analyzed by the Partial Least Squares regression (PLS); for a comparative study with GME.
