2 The motivation theory that can be found in the “Two Men and a Lot of Trucks” case study is the job enrichment theory. The job enrichment theory is where employees are more motivated when they have more control over the way they do they’re jobs. For example, in this case study, Mary Ellen Sheets was more motivated with her job as the boss of the truck company because she had more control over the way she did her job. Therefore, she quit her job with the State of Michigan. Mary Ellen Sheets created high-performing teams within her company so her company could expand and serve people in other areas. In fact, the first three franchises were sold to her daughter and the two men she hired when she started the business.
