The customers in this sector are not keen to use disruptive products since they do not fully understand the application. Disruptive technology offers a very different attributes than what customers require and hence they often perform poorly in one or the other areas. Performance trajectory required by mainstream market: Mainstream market requires that the newer technology performs as per their requirement or have the attributes that the market is familiar with and make the customer willing to use the product. These three concepts are interrelated but we never compare the performance. Instead, we compare the performance improvement and see how they make the customers satisfied.
… New Depth Sounder, Project 901 Current problems on New Depth Sounder Even though customers’ opinions are useful, customers usually see things at present. They are not necessary to image what new technology should be, a fact that will restrict company’s development if company relies on their opinions during the product development process. Using marketing research from current users is a good reference, but to reach out those potential customers having merely knowledge of Techsonic’s products and to broaden the market penetration will bring in more revenue. Furthermore, even though Techsonic carefully gather what customers need and invest tons of money in advertising and marketing research, they are gradually losing their market leadership in some field. This could result from a disruptive technology provider providing something beyond customers’ imagination and gain their satisfaction.
in order to decide if a course of action is worth working towards. If the new salesmen see the bonus reward is reachable they will desire it and work towards it but if they deem it not worthwhile they could end up not even trying to reach the goal and begin to hate their job. If I was a new salesperson the current plan would discourage me because the bonus is so far out of reach, I'll never catch up to the experienced salesmen in time to reap the benefits and watching them achieve won't build me up, it will just discourage me from trying. I think there could be both a better bonus plan and a way to help the newer salesmen. The most obvious way to change it would be to lower the incentive level or institute a tired bonus plan.
In my opinion, it is immaterial what a person does for an occupation. There will always be jobs of a higher importance and jobs of less significance. I personally feel that a celebrities job, though not valued very highly, certainly cannot be classified as worthless. A common misrepresentation and misinterpretation of celebrities is that they earn their money easily therefore their job is worthless. (TS1) Of course the optimum amount they should be receiving is debatable, however dealing with the issue at hand, a celebrities job is not as frivolous as it is surmised to be.
Many people believe that the work they get won’t get them any were in life. They also think that is they don’t try there hardest it might just get them extra help. Another reason why people chose to fail is because they think that someone else will do the work for them. Not everyone knows that the older you get the less people are helping you. You are becoming more independent.
Making employees feel under-valued is a big problem that occurs. This is because employers are now taking employees for granted. For example, feeling underappreciated for any extra work the new employer may put in. These employees may be going above and beyond what they initially signed up for, by their own accord or by orders from management. However, management take them for granted because they lack appreciation and acknowledgement for this work.
I believe money can’t buy you happiness, so if you are at a job were you are not happy eventually it will start to affect your work ethics. Motivation I believe that intrinsic factors are more important than extrinsic factors. In order to have a successful career you must be passionate about what you do. Money will only motivate you for so long then you will begin to want more from your job. If you work at a job that you really don’t like you will not perform at your best.
Coming up with a great idea is hard work, but for those people who for one reason or another who cannot come up with ideas but are great workers, they are not being rewarded. “By putting a bonus system in place, you can create an environment that encourages maximum employee performance and rewards those employees who achieve or exceed company expectations.” (Hose) On the other hand, “As long as bosses don't give honest feedback to their employees, performance review and bonus goals will remain nebulous, obvious, easy, and employees will nail them.” (Brenner, 2011)
Take the example of S0O-employee Lindblad Expeditions. It emphasizes agreeableness in its hiring decisions. The VP of HR commented, "You can teach people any technical skill, but you can't teach them how to be a kindhearted, generous-minded person with an open spirit." So, while employers want agreeable employees, agreeable employees are not better job performers, and they are less successful in their careers. One might explain this apparent contradiction by noting that employers value agreeable employees for other reasons: They are more pleasant to be around, and they may help others in ways that aren't reflected in their job performance.
