The German Management and Organizational Practices (GMOP) Survey


"The last decade has witnessed the birth of an innovative and growing strand of economic research that has investigated the role of management practices for firm and worker performance (e. g., Bloom and Van Reenen 2007; Bloom and Van Reenen 2010). To date, most of this research has looked at data from the World Management Survey (WMS), with Bender et al. (2016) being a recent example. The WMS is a survey with open ended questions on firm's management practices conducted in several countries. However, the surveys generally only include a relatively small number of establishments per country, for example around 300 for Germany. The 'German Management and Organizational Practices' (GMOP) Survey stems from an effort to provide a larger-scale database on management practices at the establishment-level in Germany. Specifically, the dataset contains establishment- level information on managerial practices in Germany for 2008 and 2013, as well as background information on these establishments. The survey design is based on the 'Management and Organizational Practices Survey' (MOPS), which was carried out in the US in 2010 by the US Census Bureau and introduced by Bloom et al. (2013). With information on management practices of 1,927 establishments, the GMOP is the first large scale and systematic survey in Germany that directly aims at investigating management practices and their relationship with establishment performance."
