Abstract
The fundamental key variable of organization for development is the willingness of individual person, but it a manager or an employee, to contribute his efforts to the achievement of organizational goal. How an organization can best keep its members to maximize an objective function is the key problem of control. This paper is mainly concerned with exploring the ways for effective control of organizational members on the assumption that human is egoistical as well as rational in pursuing his personal goals. The basic assumption underlying this paper is that human is much more interested in achieving his individual goal rather than organizational goal or collective rather than organizational goal or collective goods. Therefore, human is interpreted as an economic being rather than a social or psychological being. Before we attack the main subject, we must clarify that the word "economic" is not confined to the material incentive but extended to the nonmaterial incentive such as status, prestige, or power. Accordingly, human can be called economic if he is pursuing his personal goal, be it material or nonmaterial, paying little attention to the common goal or collective goods.
