The contingency approach, otherwise known as the “it depends” theory, states that there is no one best way to handle all situations. Even though most mass production is generally created by machines, those machines are run by humans. Not all humans operate the same way. What motivates one person may make another person shut right down. The contingency approach requires managers to read their employees behaviors and responses in order adapt to their unique personalities and bring out the best in them. In doing so, the company runs much smoother and is far more productive. I believe that the contingency approach is the most important and the most effective. People are all different but one thing is the same for all of us, we do not want to be treated like just another number on a time sheet. People want to feel valued and important, like their contribution is making a difference. Since everyone feels valued for different reasons it is important that management take the time to figure out what those reasons are if they want their shift and or company to run smoothly and profitably long term.

    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.
