Information Aggregation in Organizations
One of the most basic requirements of successful organizations is their ability to extract information from their workforce, despite the presence of ex-ante private information and vested interests on part of the employees. In this talk, I will discuss some recent findings on how hierarchies affect information flows (Reitzig & Maciejovsky, 2015) and show that strategic information revelation is a function of organizational structure (Klapper, Maciejovsky, Puranam, & Reitzig, 2015). Finally, I will discuss some recent empirical findings (Maciejovsky & Budescu, in preparation), comparing the different information aggregation institutions of groups and markets with respect to their ability of withstanding explicit manipulation attempts.
