Abstract

This chapter is about experiments that study aspects of organizational structure and economic performance. Relative to field studies using empirical data, experiments often have obvious advantages, especially that of control and randomized assignment to implement theoretical assumptions that can only be imperfectlymeasured or controlled econometricallywhenusing field data. Despite these advantages, the range of organizational hypotheses studied in experiments is small, although it is growing rapidly.
