Jan Thomas MGT 3371 Lucas September 14, 2010 Week 6 Chapter 10 The early theories included Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory, Douglas McGregor’s theory X and theory Y, Frederick Herzberg’s two-factor theory and David McClelland’s three-need theory. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory is where people move up the ladder of the five needs to become satisfied. The five needs were physiological, safety, social, esteem, and self- actualization. This particular theory was lacking the motivation once all these needs were met. Douglas McGregor’s theory X is a theory that is when the employees hate their job and don’t want to do anything. These employees need to be monitored closely. This theory lacked trust. To have to threaten an employee to do their job should never happen. That employee just needs to be fired. Theory Y was the opposite. The employees loved their jobs and would do whatever they were told to do. These employees actually stayed motivated. I believe the only thing that this theory was lacking was the proof. Frederick Herzberg’s two-factor theory was also called the motivation-hygiene theory.

What students are saying

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
