The purpose of the Management and Organizational Practices Survey is to provide information on the use of decentralized decision rights, data-driven decision making, and investments in human capital. The results will offer a better understanding of the benefits from these practices when measured in terms of firm productivity and/or firm market value. Understanding the drivers of productivity growth is essential to understanding the dynamics of the U.S. economy and the management of firms plays a central role in this.
