Monitoring Team Production by Design
This work addresses the optimal design of the monitoring technology for a team when collective liability can not form. It shows that the principal’s optimal design choice is then to concentrate monitoring on the less productive agent in a team. By controlling the less productive agent she fully discipline the more productive. This result helps in studying the interplay between the institutional set-up and the technological capabilities of teams
