"A variety of highly relevant issues have been brilliantly raised by various contributors which powerfully bring out the fact that Western understandings cannot be extended to the Indian organisational context in a simplistic manner¼. This book has highlighted various issues involved in motivation, organisational development, power relationships and management education, and has very incisively clarified why HRD practices have to be creatively adapted in specific cultural contexts. The Euro-American conceptualisations, strategies and paradigms are to be examined, modified and supplemented by indigenous perspectives. The volume is a significant and much needed contribution towards the cultural paradigms of developing societies. It helps in evolving a perspective to deal with global as well as local issues in managing motivation." --The Journal of Entrepreneurship "This stimulating collection of original essays explores two major questions regarding the field of work motivation. First, why is it that developing countries do not fully benefit from the accumulated knowledge in this area and what can be done in the context of these countries to improve organizational effectiveness and employee performance? Second, what is the relevance of western theories and techniques in these countries and what limitations must be dealt with in their application?¼. The entirety provides a comprehensive model for understanding the issues involved in work motivation in developing countries as well as insights into practical application." --International Review of Administrative Sciences In recent years, the field of work motivation has made rapid advances in terms of both theory and technique. These developments have yielded rich dividends for industrialized nations by way of creating effective organizations and by improving employee performance. Organizations in less developed nations, however, have not fully realized work motivation techniques even though the know-how and technologies developed by the West have been transferred to them. This stimulating collection of original essays addresses this issue. In particular, the contributors assess both the relevance and the limitations of Western theories and techniques when applied to developing countries. In the process, they provide a complementary model for a comprehensive understanding of work motivation from its own vantage point. "This collection of original essays on the subject of motivation is unique in that it birngs together several renowned academicians, researchers and practitioners who have worked on one common theme of critical importance in both the West and Third World Countries, including India.... This interesting volume combines a strong practical basis with a conceptual thrust. It is a sort of "Motivation Bible" for management teachers and students, trainers, managers, academicians and researchers, policy makers and implementers and all those who are interested in organisational behaviour, organisational development, international business and cross-cultural management." --Productivity "Kanungo and Mendonca as editors have aptly organized the papers in the book.... Among the other related issues covered in the book, motivation of middle managers, power dynamics and pioneering and innovating motive deal with a very specific focus and contribute to the understanding.... The book is quite thought-provoking for the academicians in the area of HRM, psychology and Sociology." --Prajnan "This book is a useful addition to the growing literature on the subject.... Many suggestions made in the chapters are valuable. The book is produced well and priced reasonably." --Indian Journal of Industrial Relations "Through their papers the writers have provided the Indian management scene with a stable foundation from which it can springboard into the future." --Times of Indian "This book gives a good account of the various theories and models on work motivation." -Business India "This stimulating collection of original essays explores two major questions regarding the field of work motivation. First, why is it that developing countries do not fully benefit from the accumulated knowledge in this area and what can be done in the context of these countries to improve organizational effectiveness and employee performance? Second, what is the relevance of western theories and techniques in these countries and what limitations must be dealt with in their application?
