Alternative explanation for the herd behavior of managers is offered. Previous studies conclude that such behavior results when actions of managers convey information that other managers find useful. However, it is proposed that managerial herd behavior is based on the principle of 'safety in numbers.' It is assumed that executives dislike taking risks and that their compensation is determined in part by their performance.
