Management practices - 2016
Issue year: 2018


The publication Management practices – 2016 characterizes management practices of the companies using a synthetic indicator of management quality called gscore indicator.

The analysis was divided in two groups — management practices more structured and management practices less structured — relating this classification with economic indicators, level of education of human resources and degree of usage of information and communication technologies.
The empirical evidence indicates a significant association between management practices and economic performance.
Companies with a larger size-class, belonging to an economic group, with more years on the market, with high qualification of human resources and using more information and communication technologies tend, not only to be those with better economic performance, but also those that exhibit more structured management practices.

The first results of this survey were disclosed through the press release to media:  Management Practices Survey 2016, in November 2017.
