Dan Pink makes a case for why extrinsic motivators don’t really work.  In an 18-minute video Pink, a “career strategist”, explains the social science behind why contingent motivators – if you do that, then you get this – only work for small band of problems and especially don’t work if the problem requires creativity.

Pink has an interesting back story – his last “real” job was as a speechwriter for Al Gore and as a law student he was bad such that “he graduated in the part of his law class that makes the upper 90% possible.”
