Productivity: The Management Enhancement Strategy for Chile

Andrea Tokman ()

No 12, Working Papers from Facultad de Economía y Empresa, Universidad Diego Portales

Abstract: The main findings of this paper are that firm improvements will involve enhancing management practices, incorporating new technologies to production processes and increasing labor competencies of floor workers and managers. Policies that promote entrepreneurial innovation and a culture that values continuous improvement and technological upgrades will be crucial to reversing the stagnation of productivity within firms. Intensifying product market competition, internationalization of domestic firms and attracting more foreign direct investment are also important policies to foster increased efficiency. Finally, association between firms, cluster formation, training and socialization of best practices, are a must for the desired spill over to the rest of the economy.
