Ludewig and Sadowski (2009) empirically examine the economic value of organizational capital. They use a comprehensive panel data set from the Institute for Employment Research (IAB) that provides standard information about inputs and outputs of the production process of German corporate establishments. This data set also includes organizational dimensions of those establishments, which makes it an interesting source for a study on organizational capital. The sample that Ludewig and Sadowski (2009) use comprises information about whether establishments adopted quality control systems and quality circles, profit or cost centers, and teamwork practices.
