Primary Outcomes (explanation)
- Take-up: Whether the firm nominates managers for the training lottery; whether they send the manager if they win the lottery
- Characteristics of the managers nominated for training (gender, relationship with the top manager).
We will look at heterogeneous effects with respect to exposure to domestic and foreign competition. We will also apply a machine-learning approach to heterogeneity analysis such as those suggested by Athey and Imbens (2016) and Chernozhukov et al (2018). This will allow us to identify significant dimensions of treatment effect heterogeneity out of a large set of potential sources of heterogeneity (e.g. firm size, sector of activity, age, productivity, geographic area, wage structure, experience with training, turnover rates).
