Application Aids: Cases, Exercises, and Instrumentation

A number of short case situations related to employee motivation are described in Part A of this chapter. Each case emphasizes different points about motivation. Following each case are questions for the reader to ponder relative to employee motivation issues depicted in the case. After the questions, a brief commentary is provided showing the use of the effort-net return model (ENR) as a framework for analysis and resolution of issues raised by the questions. This development should aid the reader in applying the propositions and prescriptions highlighted in previous chapters.

In Part B of this chapter, further application aids are provided through a number of exercises in which you can participate and a number of sample instruments you can use to help in managing employee motivation. Each exercise and instrument presented is coupled with directions for use or guidelines for interpreting data. These exercises and instruments should help you see how to apply the propositions and prescriptions discussed in earlier chapters.
