Running head: ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY 1 Annotated Bibliography Kerr, S. (1995). AN ACADEMY CLASSIC On the folly of rewarding A, while hoping for B. Academy of Management Perspectives , 9 (1), 7-14. In this book, Kerr demonstrates how organizations usually formulate reward schemes that do not reward and appreciate the set aims. Kerr goes ahead and states that instead of complaining about the lack of inspiration from the workers, superiors should evaluate what achievements require rewarding. According to Kerr, Rewards directed to quarterly profits in the place of the set target of long-term achievements and appreciation of personal achievements while expecting to build combined effort are some of the foolish reward schemes that are commonly practiced by managers today. Kerr explains that objectivity and fairness are quantifiable measures but since there are no metrics for the anticipated practice or behavior it is difficult to achieve equality in rewarding. Kerr also explains that since it is difficult to assess teamwork but visible personal behaviors can be easily noticed

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
