Here are some insights form the studies I selected for preparations:
- size however matters because smaller firms grow faster than larger ones
- the usual pattern you find in industrialized states is: industry, specialized companies and rural areas
- existing working models: benchmark model, work schedule model and non convex model
- while the first two have wage rates dependent from working hours, you won't find any hour dependent wage rates in the latter one
- the latter one is more dependent from immaterial values, making a unique selling proposition for example to the sole feature for higher return of investments
- the higher the need for adjustments, the higher the costs
- finding social partners is the first step to independencies from  governmental institutes
- the path for growth is inherent in the local production system
- reduction of working hours si a very popular policy to increase job vacancies
- the higher the investment, the lower the unemployment rate
- Literature: Roberta Piergiovanni, Emilio Domingez, Richard Rogerson
