http://takkagri.weebly.com/uploads/3/0/3/1/30319257/8.developing_mgt_skills.pdf this is the book. please use the book… the case is on page 354 to 359. The paper has to be 2.75 pages long.

answer the following questions about the case using chapter 6.

1. Using Figure 6.5 as a diagnostic aid, what are the strengths and weaknesses of Electro Logic from a motivational perspective.

2. What are the high-priority action items you would include in a consulting report to Steve Morgan, president of EL? Focus on specific actions that he could initiate that would better use the abilities of the staff and foster a more motivating work environment.

The best way to organize your analysis is by discussing the strengths and weaknesses in terms of Figure 6.5. Specifically, discuss issues of motivation in jobs at Electro Logic in terms of the following:

•the motivation-to-performance link

•the performance-to-outcomes link

•the outcomes-to-satisfaction link

The links are the boxes in the middle of the model. In each of those links, you have the different elements of the model that you can discuss. You should discuss any problems you see in the motivation-to-performance link by mentioning issues relating to goal setting and ability. You should discuss any problems you see in the performance-to-outcomes link by mentioning issues relating to reinforcement concepts like discipline and rewards as well as issues relating to concepts like intrinsic motivation. You should discuss problems with the outcomes -to-satisfaction link by mentioning issues relating to equity, salient rewards, and timeliness of rewards.

Please note that you do not need to find a strength for each area of the model. It may be that you find few motivational strengths in the jobs at Electro Logic. There will definitely be many, many more weaknesses than strengths in this case
