EMPIRICAL RESEARCH ON THE BASES AND CORRELATES OF MANAGERIAL MOTIVATION. A REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE

THE RESEARCH LITERATURE (1959-1968) RELATING TO THE CORRELATES AND BASES OF MANAGERIAL MOTIVATION IS REVIEWED. TWO THEORETICAL PERSPECTIVES ARE USED AS A FRAMEWORK FOR THE REVIEW: A NEED-HIERARCHY MOTIVATIONAL SCHEME, AND THE MOTIVATION-HYGIENE DICHOTOMY. EVALUATIONS OF THESE FRAMEWORKS ARE MADE IN THE LIGHT OF THE SUPPORTIVE AND NONSUPPORTIVE LITERATURE TO DATE. THEORETICAL AND METHODOLOGICAL OBSTACLES ARE SUGGESTED AS LIMITING ONE'S UNDERSTANDING OF MANAGERIAL MOTIVATION. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE FOR IMPROVING THE EMPIRICAL BASE AND THEORETICAL RICHNESS OF ONE'S UNDERSTANDING OF MANAGERIAL MOTIVATION THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF SYSTEMATIC THEORETICAL STATEMENTS ABOUT MANAGERIAL ATTITUDES AND MOTIVATION, THE USE OF MORE RIGOROUS STUDY DESIGNS ARE IMPROVED MEASURING DEVICES, AND THE INCORPORATION OF AN INCREASED VARIETY OF POSSIBLE MODERATOR VARIABLES. /AUTHOR/
