This paper analyzes motivation as a key factor in managing effectively. Through the studies of several theories of motivation, including Maslow's hierarchy of needs and McGregor's Theory X and Theory Y, this paper illustrates the importance of motivation in successful organizations.

From the Paper:

"The success of every organization depends on the ability of managers to provide a motivating environment for its employees. Motivated employees are more productive, happier and stay with the organization longer. Good managers need to find out what motivates their staff. This paper will explore the many different theories of motivation and their practical applications in a public library.
"Human beings are motivated by many different things that are related to our various needs, desires and drives. Many theories of motivation have been proposed over the years to try to explain why employee A is a punctual hard worker and employee B is often late and performs just the minimal requirements of the job. There are three early theories of motivation that are still very well known today. The first theory, called the hierarchy of needs theory, was proposed by Abraham Maslow (Robbins & Stuart-Kotze, 1990, p. 371; Stueart & Moran, 1993, p. 202). Maslow believed that within every individual, there exists a hierarchy of five needs and that each level of need must be satisfied before an individual pursues the next higher level of need. As an individual progresses through the various levels of needs, the preceding needs loses their motivational value."
