Michael C. Jensen's research is aimed at obtaining a clearer understanding of how the 'organizational rules of the game' affect a manager's ability to accomplish his or her goals and how the rules can be structured to resolve problems and increase productivity. His analysis of centralization, decentralization, transfer pricing, and choices among profit, cost, and budget centers emphasizes the importance of people as self-interested individuals with conflicting goals and the exacerbation or amelioration of these conflicts by the organizational rules of the game.
