    Abstract

    In this study we used Japanese firm-level data in order to explore the productive impact of organizational capital by isolating the effect of other intangibles like R&D, brand, human and social capital. Fixed-effect and random-effect panel methodology are proposed to assess specific-organizational capital at firm level. Our results suggest that in monetary terms the value of firm-specific organizational capital stock is significant when compared to traditional assets. Findings suggest that firms building up higher stocks of organizational capital not only increase their productivity but also their value.
