Research Summary

Overview

by Tatiana Sandino

Description

In studying management control, Professor Sandino focuses on understanding how different control mechanisms can lead employees at varied levels within an organization, to achieve common goals. Her work builds on contingency theory by exploring environmental, strategic, and operating conditions that may affect the effectiveness of an organization’s control mechanisms, and on agency theory by examining the efficacy of various control mechanisms in aligning the interests of those performing the work and those delegating it. She investigates two lines of research, one related to chain organizations and one related to executive compensation.
