Autonomy in Work. Second Edition.
The study gives the findings from a careful review of the available literature on autonomy on the job, its related behavioral responses, and the socioeconomic factors in the background of the worker which vary from low to high autonomy jobs. The document also provides a list of major organizational variables which social scientists have identified as affecting success and performance, and an analysis of how the variables affect behavior. Suggestions are made about the provision of a theoretical abstraction of the variables to make them applicable in diverse organizational contexts. The study is expected to clarify partially some questions relating to talent development, occupational allocation, adaptability of workers, training of workers, worker satisfactions, and performance.
