The focus and thrust of this paper is to arouse the interest and minds of Managers on effective use of Motivation based on available theories and their application in organisations. It is also instructive to note that discerning Managers know the limits or bounds imposed by over dependence on theories, and when peculiar circumstances require prudent use of initiative. This is the hallmark of managerial savvy which is indispensable in organizational effectiveness. This paper is segmented as follows: Meaning of Motivation; Theories of Motivation (Maslow, Herzberg, Mcgregor, Vroom and Alderfer); A sequence of critique relevance and application to organizations which also contain recommendations, and conclusion. It concluded by linking Motivation theory to management practice and recommended that managers must be sensitive to employees’ needs in order to direct employees energies/creativity towards the attainment of organizational goals and objectives.
