Sažetak
In fall 2009 and in spring 2010, we conducted mail-based surveys of 430 and 409 randomly selected members of the U.S. and Croatian furniture manufacturing sector, respectively. The primary objective of these studies was to compare manufacturing and business practice innovation between these countries. Although the U.S. and Croatia have very different socioeconomic, geographic, and cultural characteristics, results indicate that their furniture industries have both lost considerable market share in the markets they serve and have experienced a decline in domestic consumption in recent years due to the global economic recession. Manufacturing facility closures, industry consolidation, and process/production innovation will shape the future of the furniture sectors in both countries.
