Agile Philly

Committed to helping members build better software

I got a link to this article from infoq.com. It is a study of what motivates employees. The article was published for Harvard Business Review: http://hbr.org/2010/01/the-hbr-list-breakthrough-ideas-for-2010/ar/1.

What do members think? I kind of agree with the authors of the study.

Thanks for the link Ravi!

I agree that progress could motivate if...
- it's not a way to micro-manage employees
- it's not a way to push harder on the employees
- failure is also considered progress
- my definition of progress is your definition of progress is my manager's definition of progress. I.e., we are aligned of what progress means.
