A simple microfoundation for the utilization of fragmentation indexes to measure the performance of a team
We propose a simple non-cooperative game model where two fragmented teams compete to increase their performance. The theoretical framework is based on the theory of conflict. We show that depending on the value of a parameter in the model, the power of the competing teams may be expressed as a function of well-known fragmentation indexes: the Herfindhal-Hirschman index, the Laakso-Taagepera index, the Best shot index and the Weakest-link index.
