Growing from Theory X to Z to Y

- Theory X naturally comes to play at the inception of almost every business undertaking.
- In the growing stage of a business, when management realises its strong hands (competent employees), the value of utilizing/ retaining them and the forces behind them, the application of Theory Z comes in.
- At the peak of achievement, management applies Theory Y. Theory Y doesn't just happen. Effectiveness (competency) breeds trust and trust breeds freedom. For a business to practise theory Y, it must have exceeded the primary stages of theory X and is operating at a high level of expertise and professionalism.

Growing from Theory X to Z to Y

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.
