Joseph Scanlon’s group incentive plan

Category:
Description

Joseph Scanlon’s group incentive plan (page 341) stressed cooperation and collaboration over competition, and allowed everyone to benefit equally in cost savings that resulted from the suggestion of any one individual. Discuss whether you agree with the “everyone-benefits-equally-from-the-one” approach, and whether you think “the one” should get more for generating the idea. Do businesses use this approach today? How could it change the workplace if they did?
