Motivating Support & Desktop Analysts

  • Some Accepted Theories

    • Taylors Scientific Management

      • Bosses are smart, employees are lazy and dumb and only motivated by money

    • Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs

      • People are never satisfied. Just as soon as the need they are currently trying to satisfy is met, they hunger to meet the next higher need

    • Herzberg’s Motivation-Maintenance Theory

      • People motivate themselves to realize Maslow’s higher level needs. Factors like pay, benefits, physical environment and leadership style keep employees on-the-job but are not motivational

    • McGregor’s Theory “Y”

      • People have an innate desire to achieve at Maslow’s higher levels and will do so if managers let them be the best they can be

    • Vroom’s Preference-Expectancy Theory

      • People will work hard for rewards they value if they believe those rewards can be earned by working hard

Maslow s hierarchy of needs

Maslow believed that once basic needs were met, people were free to explore their abilities and work towards improving those skills

While there are many critics of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, it does address some fundamental human needs.

Many motivational theories reference the Hierarchy of Needs

Maslow authored several books. The Original Hierarchy of Needs was fist published in his 1954 book “Motivation and Personality”
