The article focuses on the corporate orientation between managers and employees in the management of industrial plants. The author remarks that self-motivation is the key to the success of an employee, as well as of the organization. The article states that what a manager really wants, is for his employees to understand the objective of their work, and to understand how it will be measured. Then the employee can organize and do the work, and see that it is high quality. The manager is then free to work on problems, and remove obstacles to getting the work done.
