Abstract [en]

Does Swedish firms’ organisational structure matter for innovation and productivity? The objective is to identify the most influential aspects in firms’ organisational structure concerning their propensity to innovate. We compose indices of both concepts to explain differences in productivity. The results suggest that measuring customer satisfaction, letting employees take part in discussions on progress, cooperating with other firms and having elements of learning in the daily work seem to distinguish innovative firms from non-innovative ones. Moreover, the results indicate that organisation and innovation activities matter for productivity.
