In this paper, we present a formal analysis of governance mechanisms in role-differentiated organizations where the responsibilities to conduct specialized tasks and those to coordinate those efforts into organizational outcomes are separated and taken by different actors such as coordination managers and specialist workers. We developed a game-theoretical model that has three actors; specialist workers, coordination managers, and project owners. The model analysis showed that optimal incentive structure could not be uniquely specified and that who to implement incentive distribution among those actors influenced each workers’ and managers’ decisions to make efforts. These results implied the importance of governance mechanisms within organizations that differentiated specialization and coordination.
