Impact des réorganisations du travail sur les performances des entreprises manufacturières. Une analyse sur données françaises 1997-1999


  • Véronique Janod
  • Anne Saint-Martin


The aim of this paper is to study the effect of organizational changes on firm performance. We apply the statistical framework first proposed by Rubin [1974] to identify the causal effect of reorganizations on employment, capital, value added and factor productivity. Our estimates show that reorganization exerts a positive effect on factor productivity while it has no effect on the factors themselves in terms of volume used. Reorganization would thus improve firm performance through a more efficient use of labor and capital, without requiring any increase of these production factors. Classification JEL : C25, D23, D24, L23, L60
