Summary, etc.:
In Drive, Daniel Pink makes the case that it's time to rethink our business practices. The contemporary view of motivation is that if you want people to perform better, you give them contingent rewards or threaten them with punishments. For many twenty-first century tasks, however, contingent rewards, such as monetary incentives, do not work. Incentives narrow focus and restrict possibility, so they're only effective for tasks that have clear set of rules and obvious solutions.Too many organizations make decisions based on management assumptions that are outdated and often do more harm than good. The old way of thinking about motivation led to the collapse of the financial system in 2008 and had repercussions throughout the global economy. The stakes are too high to keep operating under a flawed, "business as usual" mentality.
