Sambo also looked at motivation at the label for everything that determine how an individual decides to initiate efforts on task, how he decides on the level of effort to exert on that task. This view of motivation is obviously very embracing and effecting motivation therefore is spaced demanding task on management. He suggested that management determines the needs of its staff and the situational variables that determine a person’s behaviour. It must also determine how motivators are processed motivating a person according to him is as complex a task as the complexity of an individual needs.
1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
Ideally, the task of administration is to develop the taste for good working condition and for government to develop workers who are able to tailor and utilize the resources in the working society to their own needs by K.P. Cross.
Motivations will always need the timeliness, sensitivity and vision that any effective relationship with human growth and individuality demands. A logical and seductive assumption is that if working itself is well planned and efficient, motivation for what is being done should neatly and nicely come alone as well (Deci 1980). Vargas (1977) noted that when workers feel a strong need for what they are doing and the programme is well planned and stimulating with adequate informational feed-back the easier the motivation to work increase. If this were not so, motivation would not be the epidemic concern it is for managers. Industry, and business are filled with well designed, efficient programmes that are not very motivative part of the problem, is efficiency itself motivation takes people to people skills and time. Like a good conversation, it cannot be rushed. The best way to see a motivational strategy is as an investment. It pays dividends but often not immediately. Also because what motivates people is often beyond the inherent structure of the knowledge or skill they are performing, it means managers have to plan for motivation in its own right it cannot be taken for granted (Johnson Johnson, 1982).
The time continues model of motivation is an organizational aid for motivation planning. It is a systematic structure for introducing or applying motivation strategies through working sequence (sounders, 1981) sand described motivation as an organizational aid and motivation planing is designing and organizing instruction so that the development and enhancement of work motivation is an essential part of it. He also stressed that the time continue model of motivation helps managers to programmatically strategies from the beginning to the end of the work or project sequence so that a network of motivational influences in formulated. According to Wloodkwowskit (11989) the main Criterion for successful motivation planning, no matter what the instructional plan may be, is that each time phase (beginning, during, and ending) of the sequence of instruction for the particular project object includes significant positive motivational influence on the workers. He further listed out six basics question for motivation planning as follows:
What can I do to establish a positive working attitude for this programme?
How do I best meet the needs of my workers throughout this working sequence?
What about this working conditions that will stimulate my workers?
How does this working pattern increase or affect workers feeling of competence P
How this working pattern does provide for my workers?
Knoveles (1980) contented that when a workers is motivated to worker, they work hardens, Learn, More have source of enjoyment and achievement, and want to continuing working.
A manager working with motivated worker finds instruction more successful, achieves greater satisfaction and avoids burnout.
Based on the above, it is difficult to understand whether federal ministry of education Enugu is achieving its objective or not. Moreover, issue of threats of retrenchment of workers has kept workers in fear and the position of the ministry among the top ones in the country has fallen. Liquidity experience, encountered, this indicate some strength and weakness, efficiency and different hence even salaries are delayed
