About the Program
Most project managers are familiar with traditonal ideas of motivation – reward work behavior you want to increase and punish behavior you want to avoid. This “carrot and stick” paradygm of motivation seems intuitive and logical, because it is so familiar. Well-suited to routine tasks, this approach can actively diminish prerformance in today’s more complex world of “knowledge” work – customer-interactive, creative, and service-oriented. If physical gratification is motivation 1.0, then “reward and punishment” is motivation 2.0. To get the best from today’s workforce, we need to update our motivation viewpoint to the next level to meet the needs of the current business environment. The short answer will come as no surprise: leverage internal fullfillment. In this presentation, we will review scientific research largely overlooked by the business world that we can use to encourage superior performance in project teams.

About the PM Industry Insights
PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.
These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc.
Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs.
