Raising Malaysia’s productivity growth through better management practices will require a
systematic, comprehensive policy approach that fosters the different drivers of management
practices in a systematic and mutually reinforcing way. Realizing productivity gains through improved management practices will necessitate increases in the intensity of competition, reforms of the ownership structure of firms, and investments in the access to talent and quality of education and training. Promoting FDI is another vital tool to disseminate good management practices. According to World Bank (2016), the more effective promotion of FDI would necessitate improved access to national and international skills and talents, more liberal investment policies, and better access for smaller firms to new technology. Finally,
policies aimed at diffusing information and providing hand-on support regarding good management practices are also likely to contribute to determining whether more and better competition, ownership, FDI, and education will actually lead to better management quality.
