Expert's Website

David Lewin is a professor emeritus at the UCLA Anderson School of Management and an expert on human resource strategy and human resource management practices, public-sector unionism, collective bargaining and pension issues.

Lewin is also an authority on executive pay, and also “tournament” type compensation and reward systems. Lewin has also written extensively about business performance, workplace and organizational dispute resolution, and executive compensation and public sector pay practices. Lewin has studied the evolution of “tournament” type pay systems and structures, which are modeled on the payoff distributions of golf and tennis tournaments. From this perspective, relatively large top pay, or prizes, go to a few top executives, with the bulk of managers and employees receiving comparatively low pay or prizes.
