Abstract

Any system requires appropriate excitation if it is to remain in a state of motion. When applied to human beings the excitation is referred to as motivation. The consideration of motivation is complicated by the fact that it cannot be quantified as a cause — effect relationship, and individuals do not respond uniformly to any applied stimulus. Within a company financial and non-financial factors contributing to motivation can be identified, but political and domestic pressures also exert a strong influence.
