The data set contains data collected using a paper format and an online survey. The data includes a sample of 120 Finnish companies. The survey, structured into six sections focuses on the firms’ growth outlooks and the underlying management practices and principles. The data reports the perceptions of top managers on growth, innovativeness, and the ability for renewal. The majority of the data comprises Likert scale questions on respondents’ agreement or disagreement on innovation behaviors. This is complemented with micro-level data based indicator if a company is a growth company, the companies’ growth expectations as percentage, and if COVID-19 has had business impacts. The data description is associated with a codebook and survey form. The data can be used to better understand growth and non-growth companies behaviours and outcomes. The associated material offers an opportunity to replicate the study in different regions.
