Daniel Pink on incentive pay…?
Daniel Pink's new book Drive is focused on the science behind motivation. I found his book A Whole New Mind incredibly insightful and look forward to what he has to share in Drive. He argues that the business model assumptions based on pay incentives for performance actually have an ignorable or even negative effect on actual task performance in most situations. His work is based on studies published by highly respected economics scholars and brain research. Hmmm… Does this play into the "pay for performance" debate raging in public education? Take a look and share your thoughts!
