Much has been made of dysfunctional executive behavior in recent years. As such, the purpose of this article is to assist organizations in the design of executive work. To better construct a work environment that diminishes self-serving and unethical behavior, we propose that organizations structure an executive's work around three factors: the accountability environment, managerial discretion, and relationship composition. These factors are used to describe how organizations can better design executives' work so as to promote more desirable executive behavior. We describe how these factors should be calibrated, as well as how they affect each other. (C) 2010 Kelley School of Business, Indiana University. All rights reserved.
