Funds which would be freed up from the rationalisation of the manufacturing process will be available to invest into certain departments of the company in order to increase competitiveness, such as marketing and product innovation. With more funds being invested in development it is reasonable to expect that the products will gain unique selling points and set them aside from competitors within the market, it is then likely to see a reciprocal increase in sales, again increasing competiveness.

If the expectancy theory model is operationalized and followed in an organization, there is a strong probability that its employees will be highly motivated.
