- bridge economic theory and management in practice.
- apply benchmarking and performance analysis to real managerial data.

Contenu du cours

Benchmarking methods are introduced. Productive performance can be measured with a variety of econometric and mathematical techniques. We will focus our attention on one family of them called “Data Envelopment Analysis” (DEA) and based on linear programming. Then, we apply benchmarking and performance analysis to real data.

1) Production Frontiers and Productive Efficiency
– Efficiency and Productivity: Definitions
– Measures of Productive Efficiency

2) Non Parametric Efficiency Measures and the DEA Model
– The productive possibility set: Definition and Assumptions
– DEA and its associated linear programs

3) Efficiency Analysis of Banking Companies
– The Data set and the Variables of the Production Function
– Empirical illustration and computations of efficiency scores with Excel

4) Total Factor Productivity Growth and the Malmquist Index
– Total Factor Productivity Growth, Efficiency and Technical Changes over time
– The Malmquist Index and its associated linear programs

5) Efficiency and TFP gains for the American industries
– The Data set and the Variables of the Production Function
– TFP Growth and Malmquist Index
