We are a team of researchers who along with the US Census Bureau studied the implementation of structured management practices in a US-wide establishment level survey. We discovered large variation in the use of structured management practices across establishments of which a large share can be attributed to variation across establishments within the same firm. We also find the use of structured management practices to be related to higher performance in terms of survival, growth and innovation. This project spurred a series of management surveys across the globe including in China, Finland, the UK and Pakistan.
