This dissertation has been set out to investigate how individual motives may influence social identification and behaviour in organisational contexts. McClellands’ motives; the need for Achievement and the need for Affiliation have been examined in the light of some of the components encompassed by the Social Identity Approach. The dissertation has focused on how these motives and the Social Value Orientations described in Social Identity Approach interact as guides for social behaviour determining performance outcomes and social action. The research has also examined how individuals that are driven by these motives perceive that managerial practice such as performance feed-back and team-building exercises influence their identity, motivation and self-esteem.

Even though the study involved a limited sample of 56 subjects some interesting results
emerged from the analysis: Hope for Success (variable for achievement motive) show significant negative correlations with: 1) Group Commitment (the affective dimension of  social identification), 2) Feed-backs’ capacity to influence motivational levels, 3) Teambuildings’ effect on identity and 4) Team buildings’ effect on motivation. Suggestions for future research are included and an analytical framework provided for the analysis of motivational and social behaviour on individual and social identity levels.
