The Article, ‘The Effect of the Motivation Techniques Used by Managers to Increase the Productivity of their Workers and an Application,’ by Guney and Gulcu seeks to show the managers’ perception of motivation techniques and how their application can impact on efficiency of the workers. The specific thesis statement of the article is mainly aimed at the need to present a study that determines managers’ perceptions regarding their employees within the manufacturing sector.

 Critique on the Article

It is clear from the abstract as well as from the introduction of the article that the main focus of this article is to conduct a critical analysis of the perception of motivation techniques among managers in a bid to increase the overall efficiency of the workers in the manufacturing sector.  In a bid to support their thesis statement, the authors start by arguing that in this world, there are changes as well as advancements that are taking shapes in a more interesting rate. They go ahead and points out that whilst these changes and development have some positive aspects, for both the organisations and individuals, they have their own share of negativities. Therefore, for businesses to survive and thrive, managers must not only be decisive, but also strong and driven. This argument that seeks to support the thesis statement is not only weak but also irrelevant to the problem that the article seeks to address. The thesis statement states clearly that the focus of the article is on managers’ perception of motivation techniques and their role in influencing processes in the organisation.
