Abstract:

It was hypothesized that rewards, as perceived by an individual in an organization, are important in that perceived reward forms one identifiable factor in attempting to predict the rate of movement of ideas within an organization. Various concepts and models are discussed relating to this hypothesis. The methodology to determine the influence of the perceived reward and its subsequent impact on the flow of ideas within an organization was formed into a measuring instrument. The results from the situational interviewing instrument are presented and conclusions support the hypothesis that perceived reward is a vital factor in predicting idea flow.
