Abstract

This study focuses on productivity at a firm level, examining the levers that management can potentially use to improve the productivity of their firm. Previous studies have characterised the factors that affect productivity at a firm level; however, the relative importance of these factors, and the way in which these factors interact, remains unclear. This study builds on the classification of productivity antecedents proposed by Syverson (2011), and it proposes two different archetypes of interaction between productivity antecedents: the hierarchical vs the flat model. Data collection is ongoing to refine and validate the theoretical model.
