Growing from Theory X to Z to Y
Clarice Bugo, Student (MBA), Kenya
Theory X naturally displays itself in employees who work in an environment that lack motivation. I agree that at inception of any enterprise, Theory X is definitely at work
However, as the organization grows
, success in the enterprise only occurs as the management puts in practice Theory Z
. Through Theory Z, it'll be easier to come up with Theory Y employees that will ensure sustained productivity.
Otherwise, Theory Y only happens once a person has moved up the ladder of satisfying some needs to motivate him to love work naturally.
