Freeman and Lazear derive a similar result in a different context where the firm decides whether it should create a works council to empower workers or not. They argue that even if setting up a works council is efficient, the employer may not be better off by doing so because the empowered workers will likely capture a significant part of the efficiency gain. 15. There may be some pairs of production functions and cost functions that induce overdelegation in the M-organization, although we have not found any such simple functions.

See Roy (1950), MacDonald (1982), and Rosen (1982) for example. 3. The emphasis on broad skills and decentralization of responsibilities in large Japanese firms have been also noted by other authors, including Cole (1979), Aoki (1988), Lincoln and Kalleberg (1990), and Kagono, Nonaka, Sakakibara, and Okumura, (1985). 4.

R ¼ 0 indicates that no decision rights are delegated to the workers, and r ¼ 1 means all decision problems are assigned to the workers. Sr is nondecreasing in r in the set order. Let z(r) denote the average incremental value created by a worker from a successful decision on s A Sr and Z(r) denote the average incremental value created by the manager for s A S\Sr. The size of the allocated responsibility affects the quality of implementation and thus the value created by successful decisions: z(r) is decreasing in r, and Z(r) is increasing in r.
