About the Book :

Job Attitudes in Indian Management this study deals with job attitudes, satisfaction and patterns and levels of job motives among Indian managers belonging to different hierarchies and to various sizes of industrial organizations. The motivational structure of Indian managers has been studied at length following Maslov line of need hierarchy. In the course of this certain new findings have emerged and these have been interpreted in terms of Indian situations and culture. The relative merits and demerits of small and big organizations have been pointed out and a new theory of organizational structure is propounded whereby the merits of both big and small organizations can be integrated and achieved. It has been suggested that perhaps the best way would be to Structure several smaller organizations within a large organization so that the disadvantages of large organizations, such as high level of bureaucratization, impersonal peer relations, etc., arc minimized and/or checked to an optimum level. The idea can be fruitfully utilized by researchers in the behavioral sciences and by practicing managers for a better and more effective management.
