Distinguishing organizational innovations from technical innovations, Sanidas (economics, U. of Wollongong, Australia) asks if they can be quantitatively and qualitatively demonstrated to positive impacts on economic growth, answering in the affirmative in the context of US Fordist and Japanese just-in-time/quality control lean production processes.
