A study published in the McKinsey Quarterly in September 2014, "Why management matters for productivity" by John Dowdy and John Van Reenan showed that there is considerable evidence showing that well-managed organisations develop stronger growth patters, higher productivity and greater ability to survive adverse conditions. Their results covered across 14,000 organisations spanning more than 30 countries.
This study was further supported in a report published in the McKinsey Quarterly, May 2016, "Unlocking the potential of frontline managers in global health" by Arnab Ghatak, Srishti Gupta and Ying Sun. In their study they found that the impact on the ground by the social sector increased substantially by focussing at the management level.
