Developing questions and hypotheses about workplace motivation is one of the most important steps to understanding and applying the theories of motivation in the workplace. This week, you will look more closely at this vital part of theory building and how you can go about developing quality application-focused ideas, questions, and hypotheses. First, provide an analysis of your own experience with workplace motivation through unsystematic and systematic observation and issues that can help you to develop sound research. Second, how would you apply your ideas regarding workplace attitudes that impact motivation?
Next, go the PG Library and find a scholarly research article on one of the theories discussed and relate it to a topic of interest regarding workplace motivation and attitudes. Briefly recap the study and provide your evaluation of how well the research adds value to the field of workplace motivation.
