Understanding Reactions to Workplace Injustice through Process Theories of Motivation: A Teaching Module and Simulation
Stecher, Mary D.; Rosse, Joseph G.
Journal of Management Education, v31 n6 p777-796 2007
Management and organizational behavior students are often overwhelmed by the plethora of motivation theories they must master at the undergraduate level. This article offers a teaching module geared toward helping students understand how two major process theories of motivation, equity and expectancy theories and theories of organizational justice, are related and can be used to manage behavior in the work setting. This integrated approach is suggested to provide a superior learning experience by enabling students to view and utilize extant theories in work motivation as a coherent body of knowledge rather than a distinct and somewhat disparate set of individual theories. Lecture notes and instructional examples covering relevant theories are provided, followed by an experiential exercise and suggestions for guiding class discussion of the exercise and theoretical material.
