This approach to managerial economics takes models from recent economic research and applies them to the internal structure of the firm. After teaching basic applied economics, the authors look inside the firm and apply this analysis to management decision making. The general model used for this application is organizational architecture, which consists of three aspects of corporate organization: the assignment of decision rights within the company; methods of rewarding individuals; and the structure of systems to evaluate the performance of both individuals and business units. These three elements must balance in an organization.
