Everybody knows we all come to work to get paid. If we get paid more then we work harder and do a better job than if we got paid less.
Abraham Maslow taught us about our 'hierarchy of needs' in which he posits that we need money more than anything else and the judicious application and withholding of money will create performance.
So why are we paying underperforming software engineers so much money?!
Okay, so this all seems like a very uncharitable perspective on workers, what if we had an alternative option for helping people achieve their own goal of doing their best at work?
There are a lot of assumptions in play when we seek to motivate people with money. Let's get together and dispel some myths and explore real options for getting the most out of our teams.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn the science of performance pay as taught by Pfeffer and Deming respectively.
  • Understand ways to achieve real intrinsic motivation to get things done.
