Abstract:

A survey was conducted to investigate motivational and satisfaction differences between Information Systems IS and non-IS personnel working in various non-IS organizational departments. The motivational factors of Motivating Potential Score MPS, Growth Need Strength GNS, Social Need Strength SNS, Average Psychological Score APS, and Overall Satisfaction Score OSS were measured. Control for occupational group differences was achieved by classifying survey respondents into one of two job categories Managerial or ProfessionalTechnical. Significant differences were found in the GNS scores and SNSs of the two job categories. Several implications of the research findings are discussed and recommendations are made with respect to future studies.
