This paper presents two basic approaches of generating innovation and improved business performance (so called “low road” and “high road” approaches) and describes organisational requirements which are likely when these approaches were applied. Based on these ideal types, empirical data are provided on recent changes of organisational structures and the use of human resources from two representative surveys in Germany. The findings indicate that there is only a limited range of organisational changes in the German industry.
