5.(TCO H, I, J) The senior executive team at AllGoodThings.com,
after a strategy review session with the Board of Directors, has
decided that it's time to invest some time and capital in
improving the corporate culture. The company has rebounded
from a near calamity two years ago, and while it was a great
scramble, the company survived and is in the strongest position
ever. They knew that the culture had been strained by the

episode and wanted sincerely to work to bring things back to
"normal." With the assistance of local HR offices, a case was
made to the employee population that certain aspects of their
current culture might have suffered over the past few years and
that it was time to think about change. They announced that
they would be undergoing an organizational culture review and
that everyone's opinion was valued. A whopping 79% of the
employees participated in the survey that they administered.
Senior management had worked with the consultants for a few
months before the survey was given and had determined their
"Ideal" scores. The survey confirmed their suspicions.

don't know what is going on with this person. But, you can try
to start to understand this employee by examining various
motivation theories. Use elements from each of Maslow's
theory, Herzberg's Two-Factor theory, and Equity theory and
assemble your own motivation theory to help you to start
understanding this employee. Be sure to fully explain and
define all elements that you use in your new model of
motivation. Finally, compose a short case to demonstrate how
your motivation model can actually be applied. (

in the findings from these two studies and what was the
significance of the research?
