Call for expressions of interest to research productivity improvement in the private and public sectors, The Global Development Network

The Global Development Network has launched a call for expressions of interest for research teams interested in producing high-quality research to document the increase in productivity at the firm level through the implementation of different management methods like Kaizen, the Japanese style management approach. Four selected teams will receive up to USD 40,000 to conduct research projects under GDN’s program, Productivity Improvement in the Private and Public Sector: Roles and Lessons from Kaizen approaches.

Through this program, and in partnership with the JICA-Research Institute (JICA-RI), GDN intends to document the relationship between management methods and productivity at the firm level. GDN and JICA-RI aim to address the need to address the lack of contextualized knowledge on managerial capital and interactions with policies to enhance productivity growth. The partnership will draw on different cases to document what has been done to enrich our shared knowledge of initiatives in the public or the private sector to boost productivity and the role of policies to support them, with a focus on the Japanese managerial philosophy and method, Kaizen.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 6 April 2017, 6pm IST (Indian Standard Time)
