Abstract:

The best way to conclude this discussion is to repeat the basic conclusions of this paper. First, many productivity and quality of working life programs, although initially successful, do not persist over time. Second, now known are some of the critical processes-socialization, commitment, reward allocation, diffusion, feedback--that affect the long-run viability or the failure of these programs. Lastly, a set of action plans were presented to insure the long-run viability of these programs.
