Contract Systems, Bureaucracies, and Faculty Motivation: The Probable Effects of a No-Tenure Policy.
Bess, James L.
Journal of Higher Education, v69 n1 p1-22 Jan-Feb 1998
Looks at how contracts impact on college faculty incentives to produce at high levels of quality and quantity. Focus is on the organizational and structural conditions that accompany tenure systems in academic organizations, on the associated motivational climate that is produced by either tenure or contract systems, and on the effect of alternative climates on faculty motivation and productivity.
