Among the process and content motivational theories applied to this case study are Adams' Equity Theory, Herzberg's Two-Factor Theory, B.F. Skinner's Operant Conditioning Theory and Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Recommended actions cognizant with the theories cited in each situation are also given.

From the Paper:

"Sarah Goodman faced the following problems at work. First was the lunch meeting with the advisor for the MHA program at State Thomas University. Next was the Human Resources Department meeting to gather input on a strategy to bring the pay issue into line so as to avoid a gender discrimination charge. Cognizant with this, was the personal issue of whether she got paid as well as Dave, her counterpart in Tampa. There was also the performance appraisal she'd scheduled with her assistant Maria and her intention of trying to get her more involved with others in the department with the ultimate objective of landing her a promotion later on. She was primarily confronted with the problem of Maria's less than desirable social skills, a hindrance that not only prevents her from being more a part of the department, but also a hindrance to her promotion."
