Motivation To Learn and Perform.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on motivation to learn and perform in the workplace. "Getting It Together: Motivations and Success Characteristics for Interorganizational Collaborations" (Mary Wilson Callahan) presents results of a literature review, a hierarchical framework of motivations for interorganizational collaboration, and examples of application of the model in large and small companies. "Deterrents to Participation in Women Only Learning Events: A Case Study" (Kimberly S. McDonald, Linda M. Hite) reports that lack of departmental support in terms of time off to attend and financial assistance were the two major deterrents. "Learning Climate and the Structure of Work" (Mirjam A.A.H. van Moorsel) explores the relationship between learning climate and the structure of work and finds that the team-based department has a more favorable learning climate than the task-structured department. "Factors Affecting Motivation to Use Computer-Based Training" (Dian L. Seyler, Elwood F. Horton III, Manuel A. Carvalho, Reid A. Bates) reports a study to examine the relationship of five groups of variables with motivation to transfer skills and knowledge learned in a computer-based training program that found that individual attitudes and environmental variables explained most of the variance in motivation.
