The Motivational Components of Goal Setting
Terborg, James R.
Journal of Applied Psychology, 61, 5, 613-621, Oct 76
Relationships among goal setting, monetary incentives, two indexes of motivation, and performance were examined in an experimental simulation. Results suggested that goal-setting and monetary incentives were related independently to measures of motivation and performance. Incentives, however, had no impact on whether or not subjects set performance goals. For availability see EA 507 670. (Author/JG)
