ABSTRACT
A review of the research on reward systems, job design, leadership, selection and training shows that the existing normative organization theory fails to deal adequately with the significant individual differences in persons' responses to organizational policies and practices. An effective organization theory has to suggest an organization design that will treat individuals differently with respect to rewards, job design, leadership, selection and training.
