MOTIVATE TO ENHANCE SCIENTIFIC EFFECTIVENESS: A QUALITATIVE STUDY AMONG AUTHORITIES AT THE TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY

Abstrakt

Purpose. The aim of the study is to examine how authorities motivate academics to enhance scientific effectiveness. The framework of this study is rooted in the Self-Determination theory and the AOM model. It means that individual behaviour is a configuration of ability, opportunity to contribute and motivation. However, using the self-determination continuum, different types of motivation can be stimulated. Methodology. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with five academic authorities (top and midlevel managers) of the public technical university in Poland. Main topics were scientific effectiveness and strategy of motivation. Thematic analysis was implemented to identify patterns within qualitative data. Results. The authorities recognized rewards as much more effective motivational tools. Thematic analysis indicated that the current system of incentives is mainly based on the financial gratification (external regulation). The next group of incentives was related to social rewards, e.g. public appreciation (external and introjected regulation). The third group of incentives was associated with reducing teaching and administrative duties (identified regulation). The last one can indirectly facilitate intrinsic regulation. Limitations. A limited number of scientific fields regarding technology and engineering were represented (civil engineering, marine engineering, electronic and information engineering, computer science). Practical Implication. The authorities are strongly focused on achieving organizational goals and give importance to promote controlled motivation their subordinates. However, they can pay more attention to create conditions for autonomous and intrinsic motivation. Managerial practices can have a positive impact on employee well-being and thriving. Originality. The Self-Determination theory was integrated with human resources management in higher education. Funded by the National Science Centre, Poland, grant no. UMO-2017/27/B/HS4/01033
