THE BULK OF EXTANT MANAGEMENT LITERATURE presents work motivation from a predominantly closed-system mindset–with internal operations and efficiency comprising its focal interest. The advent of globalization and progressively heterogeneous workforce call for increasingly ingenious solutions to ever more convoluted problems of managing modern organizations. That reality spawned the demand to counterpose this principally linear, cause-and-effect view of organizational dynamics. By engrafting its content in an open-system paradigm, the book commences its exploration of work motivation with individual-level dissection of the phenomenon and by transitioning through the group analysis concludes the process with the broader environmental perspective–thus pushing the debate on work motivation beyond the organizational context. This conceptual expansion synthesizes the existing knowledge and permits a novel outlook on work motivation through ancillary lenses of individual and team dynamics entrenched in cross-cultural mosaic of globally diverse labor. With the intent of applying the most seminal disciplinary research, in explicitly defined circumstances that managers address on a diurnal basis, the book provides a practical and salutary guide on a path to managerial excellence.
