    What Can Your Organization Expect?

    Business insights from science: Field experiments - like medical trials - are the "gold standard" for learning about the world. Harness the power of the scientific method to improve and revolutionize your organization. Bespoke support, for free: The Institute's economists are not consultants, and they will not charge you for their time. Working with you allows them to generate original research and publish it in top academic journals. Minimal distraction: Field experiments are set up to take place organically within your business activity. Our scholars will take care of the field experiment from A to Z, with minimal/no interference with your regular business activities. Mastery with experimentation: Every large successful company, from Google to Walmart to IEA, routinely uses randomized experiments and behavioral economics to improve their business. At the Institute you will learn how to easily incorporate these methods into your core management practice.
