Motivation Case

Answer the questions presented in case study in a three-page double-spaced paper. Paper will be graded on grammar, integration of key course concepts, and thoroughness of responses to the questions posed in the case. You are expected to apply course content to answer the case questions.

 Video Case—"Dick Learns About Tipping" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVD5wvJ1ru4

First, before attempting to answer the questions below, make sure you have completed the assigned readings from Chapters 7 & 8, and that you have read the premise of the TV show provided in the next paragraph. You should then watch the video case , "Dick Learns About Tipping" from the TV comedy series 3rd Rock From The Sun. 

From what you have learned in the reading assignments for chapters 7 & 8, and from our discussions in class, answer the following questions about the actions of the characters in this video case. You will probably find that you need to watch the video case multiple times in order to clearly identify how specific behaviors of the characters reflect various components of different motivation theories we have studied.

 

 

As a reminder, the eight motivation theories discussed in chapters 7 & 8:

1 Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs

2 Alderfer's ERG Theory

3 Herzberg's Two-factor Theory

4 McClelland's Acquired Needs Theory

5 Equity Theory

6 Expectancy Theory

7 Reinforcement Theory

8 Goal Setting Theory

 

Answer all of the following questions:

1. Selecting from the motivation theories above, choose two of the theories that you think best explain Dick Solomon's attempts to motivate the waitress. Be explicit in linking how both Dick's and the waitress' specific behaviors and comments relate to the specific aspects of each theory and how that theory explains why Dick's strategy was either successful or not. Common sense explanations are not sufficient; you have to explain it using the theories.

 

2. Using a motivation theory different from the ones you used in the first question, which motivation theory could Dick use to increase the success of his attempts to motivate the waitress? Explain in detail again linking specific aspects of each theory to the situation.

 

3. Use equity theory and reinforcement theory to explain what you think influenced Tommy and Harry's behaviors in front of the fast food restaurant. Take into account their explanation to Dick right after they get home.
