This paper introduces the “German Management and Organizational Practices” (GMOP) Survey, which provides a larger-scale database on management practices at the establishment-level in Germany. Specifically, the dataset contains establishment-level information on managerial practices in Germany for 2008 and 2013, as well as background information on these establishments. The survey design is based on the “Management and organizational practices survey” (MOPS), which was carried out in the US in 2010 by the US Census Bureau. With information on management practices of 1,927 establishments, the GMOP is the first large scale and systematic survey in Germany that directly aims at investigating management practices and their relationship with establishment performance.
